windows – About exe file information

Question: Question:

I have a question about an exe file.
If you open the exe file in the Windows properties, you can check the file description, copyright information, and version information.

At first I thought that such information was written in .res, but when I looked up .res, it didn't.
So where is this information stored in the exe file?

Answer: Answer:

It is described in VERSIONINFO resource .

At first I thought that such information was written in .res, but when I looked up .res, it didn't.

Multiple resources are concatenated and stored in .exe. It may have been described in a resource other than the referenced .res.
