CWinApp-derived Class for Retrieving Version Information

This class was developed for the easy accessing of version information from a resource file. It is derived from CWinApp and implements accessor the function you will most likely need to use. As the code is fairly straightforward, I'll let you look at the source for more information.

Here's all you need to do to use this class:
  1. Add the CVersionApp.cpp and CVersionApp.h to your Project
  2. Derive your CWinApp class from CVersionApp
  3. Call the virtual CVersionApp::InitInstance() function from your CWinApp::InitInstance()

BOOL CYourWinApp::InitInstance()
{
 ....
 return CVersionApp::InitInstance();
}

    - fix the code for UNICODE projects (a few calls missing the _T("...")).

    - make the get-methods const.


    Best regards,
