Shotcut.exe meta data is missing

What is your operating system?
Windows 10 21H2 Build 19044.1415

What is your Shotcut version (see Help > About Shotcut)? Is it 32-bit?
21.12.21 64-bit

Can you repeat the problem? If so, what are the steps?
(Please be specific and use the names as seen in Shotcut, preferably English. Include a screenshot or screen recording if you can. Also, you can attach logs from either View > Application Log or right-click a job and choose View Log.)
The meta data for shotcut.exe is largely missing. See the attached image. Descriptions and versions are particularly missing. The software update monitor app I use relies on this meta data being there. I assume other such apps are expecting this data to be there. On top of that, it’s seemingly the norm for this data to be filled in. I consider this a minor issue but I assume it would be easy to fix.

Please submit a patch for it. Here are our build scripts; notice the intentional lack of Microsoft Visual Studio

The build-windows.yml above does install windres.exe.

Happy holidays to you too. :slight_smile:

I think my contribution here is alerting you to the minor issue. I haven’t done software development in many years and wasn’t looking to get back into it, at least anytime in the foreseeable future.

Done for the next version.


Thank you! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and all the developers of this great application!
