FILEINFO_GET_STRFILEINFO

Please see the "options for commands" section of this manual for general information about the use of macros for configuration.

Valid values are "Y" (the default) and "N". Executable programs (like ".exe" and ".dll") frequently contain version and product information which can be added to the file's html report.

You can configure what properties MAKEMSI will display with the "FILEINFO_STRFILEINFO_DISPLAY_THESE".

The "Display a file's Properties" feature allows you to see the properties for a particular file. You should also have a look at the "FILEINFO_GET_DOCUMENTINFO" macro.

There will be some typically minor performance impact when properties are displayed.
