Change File Properties (Summary tab)?
Does anyone know how to automate updating of file properties, such as comments, on the summary tab (that is the one you would get to by right clicking on a file>Properties...>Summary tab)

For the Version tab you can do this in Visual Builder when you compile VB\C++\.Net I would like to do something similar to the Comments section on the Summary Tab for other types of files (ini, txt, mdb, etc).

I have search around but most utilities I have found just update the attributes on the General tab (dates, read only, etc).

Perhaps there is a command line utility...or something in Visual Builder I can't find.

Maybe I'm just missing something??

Thanks for any suggestions,

Download and install DsoFile v1.4 from

Then see the attached sample (requires VBP 6+) for using from VBP to update summary properties for a file.

Note that this doesn't seem to work with newer (2.0) or older (1.1, 1.2?) versions of DsoFile.
