#1523 closed defect (fixed)

set exe file attributes

Component: packaging Version: trunk

Follow up from #678.
cx_freeze doesn't allow us to set the file description, version, etc.
So we have to patch it up after it runs, before we package things.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Done in r15919.
Bonus: the description is now more correct in the task manager.

FWIW, there are many other tools we could have used instead of verpatch, see How do I set the version information for an existing .exe, .dll? but most of them are awful, without source or just buggy.
It does require visual studio to build from source... PITA - I don't have time to port it to mingw.
