Description

17 years ago
(Bug 6474 implemented the Windows version resources for Mojo.  See that bug
for background.)

The version resource for Internal Name should be changed from
"NETSCAPE" to "NETSCPE6".  According to 
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/winui/hh/winui/rc_7x2d.asp

   InternalName Specifies the internal name of the file, if one exists?for
   example, a module name if the file is a dynamic-link library. If the file
   has no internal name, this string should be the original filename, without
   extension. This string is required.

Another problem with the VERSIONINFO, is that each blank version field
shows up as a single random character on Windows9x.  I saw 
this with another application as well, so xt might be a Win95 bug.  

This is what I see for the following blank entries:
  Comments:  "4"
  Private Build Description: looks like a thick vertical bar
  Special Build Description: "$"
  
A possible workaround might be to put a single blank character for each
empty field, but I have not tested that theory...

bobj@netscape.com - Thanks for your input, but the correct place for
reporting Netscape 6 bugs is <http://home.netscape.com/browsers/6/feedback/>. 
Unfortunately, mozilla.org doesn't have the resources to cope with their bugs as
well as our own. :-) Additionally, lots of stuff which is broken in their
version is now fixed in ours.

However, if you see this problem in a recent build of Mozilla, feel free
to return and ask for this bug to be reopened!

heh.  Verifying as Invalid.  :-)
