Edit Package Resources

When compiling your package, Paquet Builder creates a single executable file, ready to be distributed. The majority of Windows executable files (PE format) contain a resource section that stores version information, icons, cursors, string tables…

This page allows you to customize some of these resources of the executable file to insert your own logo and copyright information.

Package Icon Path

Paquet Builder has the ability to change the default icon of the executable file. You can replace the default icon by specifying another icon file (it must be a true icon file, .ico extension). Paquet Builder supports any icon image such as 32x32, 16 colors or 48x48, 256 colors: if you need to create or extract icons easily, then use GConvert: this tool lets you extract icons or convert images into icons.

Uninstaller Icon Path

Same as before, but for the uninstaller EXE file.

Version Information

Version information of an executable program is a special resource section that contains such information about the file as its version number, its intended operating system, its original filename, its copyright information… This information is then included in the compiled code. When version information is included, end users can right-click the program icon and select Properties to display the version information (or press ALT+ENTER in Windows Explorer).

Paquet Builder allows you to enter your own version information:

  • Package Description: should be the description of your package contents.

  • Uninstaller Description: should be the description of your uninstaller.

  • File number: the current release number of your package. The format must be X.X.X.X where X is an integer, such as 1.20.34.45.

  • Product Number: the current version number of your product if any. The format must be X.X.X.X where X is an integer, such as 1.22.33.44. It can also be the same number as File number.

  • Trademarks: trademark of your company if any. You can leave this field blank to remove this field.

  • Other information such as copyright, company name, product name is directly taken from Basic information.
