VS 2015 - RC file in vcxproj file not updated
I'm building a VS2015 solution and uses the Properties page in the step to update the project properties for each project in the solution.

For most project I get something like this:


d:\code\sln\..\myproject.vcxproj...setting properties...setting version...
but for some reason it does not do this for all project in the solution?

Any idea how it finds the RC files for each project and how why it skips some even it exists?

The Make VS actions parse a .vcxproj file for any .rc files in Compile, ClCompile, and ResourceCompile items. Please send or post the project file(s) that aren't working.

It's finding the .rc file, but since it looks for


to identify a VERSIONINFO resource, and the .rc file in your project has


it doesn't process the versions. Changing that to


in the .rc file will make it work.

That's it thanks.

In the latest download, the Make VS actions have been updated to handle values other than VS_VERSION_INFO for the VERSIONINFO resource version ID.
