Windows standards dictate that every executable file shall have a Version Resource that has appropriate fields completed- i.e. Company Name, File Version, etc.
The current Windows test release of MySQL has all executable files digitally signed (great!) but it would also be helpful when looking at a list of running processes to see the version and company name info as well.

How to repeat:
Show properties of any executable file in Windows Explorere. Note absence of Version tab.

Suggested fix:
Add Version Resource to build enviornment and have it correctly represent current version number. This can be done by including the version header file in the VersionResource.rc file.
