Everything v1. 50.1257a doesn't index .mui file properties

Post by SuperDude » Thu May 06, 2021 5:03 pm

Everything doesn't index "Version" or "Product Version" properties for ".mui" files and ".msi" files, even though I have them set to be indexed.

This is just a BTW notice. Thank you.

MSI "Version" and "Product Version" are not exposed to the outside world. They are inside the database (an MSI file is basically a database with information and instructions for Windows Installer to execute)

That .mui files do not expose their version surprised me a bit. Those are basically .exe or .dll files with a different extension (and a .dll file is basically a .exe file in itself).
Moreover: if I rename file.mui file to file.dll, I get the version :?

Everything is using the values from the "system.fileversion" "system.software.productversion" Windows property system properties.

Currently these properties return nothing for mui and msi.

I've put on my TODO list to add support for these file types.

Thank you for your suggestion SuperDupe!
