How do i change .Exe Details?

Hey there,
I was running onto some Program Editing, and i say that the program wouldn't name the item for its name but for his Description.

And i also noticed that the description is only there to see.
I don't see how to edit that description.

Please, help, i can't no further edit because of this little glitch.

Offtopic: Glitch means Little Problem right?


Thanks,
Alex.

Those details are compiled into the exe and you can't change them.

Most coders are lazy and merely put the app name into the description field. In fact I think MSDEV puts that there by default and no one bothers to change it. If you want to add your own comments or other details on the file, use the "Details" tab to do so.

[Edit] Ooops, did you mean you ARE coding and you can't chage the description field in your program resources and have it show up there?

No. Advanced System Care is the program, and there is a field , on which i am changing the programs like one that is not need, rename it like Sus_InternetBooster and set another cleaning program that i like.
So that PC Cleaning is on one app only and it worked so far.

And i want to change the description cause ASC doesn't care for the filename but the description.

Thanks,
Alex.
