VS_VERSION_INFO info  Overview  Group

The VS_VERSION_INFO structure depicts the organization of data in a file-version resource. This structure is not a true C-language structure because it contains variable-length members. This structure was created solely to depict the organization of data in a version resource and does not appear in any of the header files shipped with the Microsoft Platform Software Development Kit (SDK).

The VS_VERSION_INFO structure is the root structure that contains all other file-version information structures.


    WORD  wLength; 

    WORD  wValueLength; 

    WORD  wType; 

    WCHAR szKey[]; 

    WORD  Padding1[]; 


    WORD  Padding2[]; 

    WORD  Children[]; 




Specifies the length, in bytes, of the VS_VERSION_INFO structure. This length does not include any padding that aligns any subsequent version resource data on a 32-bit boundary.
Specifies the length, in bytes, of the Value member. This value is zero if there is no Value member associated with the current version structure.
Specifies the type of data in the version resource. This member is 1 if the version resource contains text data and 0 if the version resource contains binary data.
Contains the Unicode string “VS_VERSION_INFO”.
Contains as many zero words as necessary to align the Value member on a 32-bit boundary.
Contains a VS_FIXEDFILEINFO structure that specifies arbitrary data associated with this VS_VERSION_INFO structure. The wValueLength member specifies the length of this member; if wValueLength is zero, this member does not exist.
Contains as many zero words as necessary to align the Children member on a 32-bit boundary. These bytes are not included in wValueLength. This member is optional.
Specifies an array of zero or one StringFileInfo structures, and zero or one VarFileInfo structures that are children of the current VS_VERSION_INFO structure.
