My my, this brings back to memory my days as an anti-apple fanboy and wannabe script kiddie [Wink] Things certainly have changed...(and how bored must I be at the moment...) [Razz]

Aaaaaaanyhow, use (Google for) ResHacker and modify the Version Info of the .exe.

Voilą.

o.O

Try this instead.

Open the Control Panel in Windows
Open Folder Options
Click on File Types
Find the file type you want to modify and click on it
Click Advanced
Change the text in the top box to what you want it to be
Click OK twice

This was also my first thought as I was thrown by password's screenshot of a text document (bad example, by the way, password [Razz] ), but doesn't work for .exe files. The information displayed is stored in the version information embedded in the exe.
