Set VB6 Version number in FinalBuilder

Does anyone know how to set the version number of VB6 files in Final Builder from a variable?

I want to enter that info when the build starts and have all components in the build have the same version number.  The docs that come with the program are poor (and out of date). 

I thought I'd ask here since I know may of you (and FogCreek) use FinalBuilder.

Thanks

I don't know about FinalBuilder, but we had this problem with a C++ project - we wanted to set all the version resources for a build to the same number. We went around with writing programs to update our resource scripts, then we found a better solution:

Elphin Stampver. This is a program that updates the version resources in an EXE. This way, we didn't have to worry about tweaking things on a per-project basis; we just stamp the right build number into it as a post build step.

Easy and simple. And free!
