VS_VERSIONINFO structure

Represents the organization of data in a file-version resource. It is the root structure that contains all other file-version information structures.

Syntax


typedef struct {
  WORD             wLength;
  WORD             wValueLength;
  WORD             wType;
  WCHAR            szKey;
  WORD             Padding1;
  VS_FIXEDFILEINFO Value;
  WORD             Padding2;
  WORD             Children;
} VS_VERSIONINFO;

Members

wLength

Type: WORD

The length, in bytes, of the VS_VERSIONINFO structure. This length does not include any padding that aligns any subsequent version resource data on a 32-bit boundary.

wValueLength

Type: WORD

The length, in bytes, of the Value member. This value is zero if there is no Value member associated with the current version structure.

wType

Type: WORD

The type of data in the version resource. This member is 1 if the version resource contains text data and 0 if the version resource contains binary data.

szKey

Type: WCHAR

The Unicode string L"VS_VERSION_INFO".

Padding1

Type: WORD

Contains as many zero words as necessary to align the Value member on a 32-bit boundary.

Value

Type: VS_FIXEDFILEINFO

Arbitrary data associated with this VS_VERSIONINFO structure. The wValueLength member specifies the length of this member; if wValueLength is zero, this member does not exist.

Padding2

Type: WORD

As many zero words as necessary to align the Children member on a 32-bit boundary. These bytes are not included in wValueLength. This member is optional.

Children

Type: WORD

An array of zero or one StringFileInfo structures, and zero or one VarFileInfo structures that are children of the current VS_VERSIONINFO structure.

Remarks

This structure is not a true C-language structure because it contains variable-length members. This structure was created solely to depict the organization of data in a version resource and does not appear in any of the header files shipped with the Windows Software Development Kit (SDK).
