When you compile a resource file with windres, the
version field never gets linked in the actual output.
Also, when you convert a RC .RES file to .o file with
res2coff, it complains "unnamed resource of type 16
[VERSION] : [0001]" but still makes the .o file. It
also seems to drop the VERSION field. Any Idea Why?

    Thanks (belatedly) for the testcase.
    windres -O coff -i osres.rc -o osres.o works fime for me.
    Linking that osres.o file into an app worksa too amd the
    versioninfo is filled out as expected.
    What are you doing?
