Subject: Win32 executable additional information (--info) not updated
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.4k
I am able to change the packaged Windows executable Properties | Details | FileVersion by using the -N (--info) option. However, all other properties are set to the default values I see in the Exe.pm sub default_info. While debugging I was able to see all of my param|values from the command line in an array of hashes along with the default values, but I was not able to follow things any further. I would very much like to change the Copyright property. Thanks in advance!

--info and --icon are mostly broken in current releases of PAR::Packer. Mark Dootson (Win32::Exe maintainer) has reworked the PAR::Packer build process wrt Windows exceutable resource handling. Please try development head at http://svn.openfoundry.org/par/PAR-Packer/trunk (make sure you have the latest version of Win32::Exe) Cheers, Roderich

Hi Roderich, Thanks for the quick response! My Win32::Exe is up-to-date at 0.17. I installed the head of the trunk (all tests passed), but when I tried to package my script, I got the following error: "D:\data\CI\V36\crash_inspect\dev\build>mk_CI_PAR.bat Set up gcc environment - 3.4.5 (mingw-vista special r3) Set up gcc environment - 3.4.5 (mingw-vista special r3) Copyright (C) 2004 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail." I never heard of sxstrace.exe before, but attempted to get a log of the problem (attached). The error in the log (snippet below) doesn't tell me much. Any suggestions? "INFO: Parsing Manifest File C:\Users\KAT\AppData\Local\Temp\parlmquj.exe. INFO: Manifest Definition Identity is (null). ERROR: Line 0: XML Syntax error. ERROR: Activation Context generation failed. End Activation Context Generation." Thanks and regards, -ken On 25-Jan-12 15:11, Roderich Schupp via RT wrote: Show quoted text

cc'ing Mark Dootson on this, because I think the problem is in Win32::Exe (or how we generate the prototypical packed executable, i.e. PAR-Packer/myldr/boot.exe) On 2012-01-26 00:48:44, gronsdorfer wrote: Show quoted text

Yeah, turns out there's no test for "pp --info ..." :( Show quoted text

I did some experiments using Win32::Exe's exe_update: exe_update --info ProductVersion=44.1 packed.exe seems to work (can see 44.1 in Windows Explorer, packed.exe runs fine), exe_update --info ProductName="inglorious basterds" packed.exe seems to corrupt the executable (Explorer doesn't even show a "Version" tab, executing packed.exe results in "can't execute" error). If I try this with some random executable, it works as expected. Note: My experiments were done on (32-bit) XP. Cheers, Roderich
The --info option for pp has been removed in PAR::Packer 1.015.
