Hello, I have used `exe_update` utility to add information to EXE file generated by PAR::Packer's `pp` utility, I found that I could add ProductVersion, and FileVersion information without problem. But as soon as I tried to specify ProductName or FileDescription information, I got a broken EXE file: C:\>echo print "Hello World!\n"; 1>hello.pl C:\>call pp -o hello.exe hello.pl C:\>hello Hello World! C:\>copy /y hello.exe hello.orig.exe 1 file(s) copied. C:\>copy /y hello.exe hello.ver.exe 1 file(s) copied. C:\>copy /y hello.exe hello.name.exe 1 file(s) copied. C:\>copy /y hello.exe hello.desc.exe 1 file(s) copied. C:\>call exe_update --info ProductVersion=0.1.0 --info FileVersion=0.1.0 hello.ver.exe C:\>hello.ver Hello World! C:\>call exe_update --info ProductName=HelloWorld hello.name.exe C:\>hello.name The system cannot execute the specified program. C:\>call exe_update --info "FileDescription=A common demonstration of Perl Programming Language." hello.desc.exe C:\>hello.desc The system cannot execute the specified program. C:\>call exe_update --info ProductName=HelloWorld --info ProductVersion=0.1.0 --info FileVersion=0.1.0 --info "FileDescription=A common demonstration of Perl Programming Language." hello.exe C:\>hello The system cannot execute the specified program. You'd see that "The system cannot execute the specified program." error appeared when trying to execute EXE files which have ProductName and/or FileDescription information added by exe_update. When I tried to run these EXE files on Windows Explorer, I got an error dialog: This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. Source code (hello.pl), original pp-generated EXE file (hello.orig.exe), version-modified EXE file (hello.ver.exe), and broken EXE files (hello.name.exe, hello.desc.exe, and hello.exe) together with test script (test.bat) are attached as `helloworld-pp-broken.tar.xz`. Regards, Nutchanon Wetchasit P.S. System information follows: - Win32::Exe: 0.17 - PAR::Packer: 1.028 - Perl: Strawberry Perl 5.22.1.1 32-bit (portable ZIP edition) - System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3
