Windows file versions are incorrect

Currently, binaries are getting a file version of 1.9a7 which causes them to show in the status bar. This regressed with the landing of bug 383167.

True for DLLs like xpcom.dll, but FYI xul.dll is different: it has no version at all and no version tab in File Properties.

Yuck, I guess we need to deal with this for FF3... I thought I could remove the VERSIONINFO block entirely, but I can't because that's how we get publisher/description information, which we need for UAC dialogs.

So I'm proposing to following a VERSIONINFO scheme like this:


And set the VS_FF_PRERELEASE flag for any version that has a letter in it. Ted, does that sound like a reasonable plan?

Yeah, that's not terrible.  It will at least give us consistent and increasing version numbers, which is all anyone really wants.
+'ing and marking as P3.

This appears to do what we want. It will regenerate the buildid every time you do a toplevel build (more specifically "export" in config).

Kill the comment (and any other mentions of this PBI param if you're going to kill the param.

Isn't this going to break Universal builds?  That's what MOZ_BUILD_DATE was for, right?

r=me with those fixed.

It will not break universal builds, see the hunk in config/ which reads MOZ_BUILD_DATE
Oh, duh.  Must have paged that first hunk out of my brain by the time I got to the bottom.
Fixed on trunk.
