Private build

Post by Blub » Mon Dec 31, 2007 1:57 pm

I just opened bw5mount.dll from latest Daemon Tools Lite and it says their "Private Build". Developer of the program says they haven't set the file Private Build as their is no such property in PE file. So does Restorator interprets the file wrong?

Hi Blub,

the "private build" property is a flag in the "fixed file info" in the version resource. Few tools care about this flag, and it certainly doesn't affect functionality of the program. Some compilers will set the flag without the developer explicitly setting it, so this might be the case with bw5mount.dll.

I've double-checked with Microsoft Visual Studio, and it displays the "private build" flag in the same way as Restorator does, so I doubt it's a misinterpretation in Restorator.

Thanks and happy New Year!
Florian
