Re: TimeDate stamp in Property Edit

Thank you again!!! :D After some quick testing, the revised GetLinkCompileDateTime.exe seems to be working properly on all the EXEs I had previously tried, including the non-Delphi EXEs which previously yielded either an incorrect TimeDate stamp (2018.01.17 12.14.22 am instead of 2010.07.04 09.48.5...

Re: TimeDate stamp in Property Edit

:idea: BTW, if (as far as you know) most other compilers correctly insert the compilation date into the PE header, how easy or difficult would it be to incorporate extraction of the PE header TimeDate stamp for non-Delphi EXEs into the code for your GetLinkCompileDateTime.exe, so it could be more un...

Re: TimeDate stamp in Property Edit

Actually it's the link-time not compilation-time. That's usually almost the same but since we are getting precise here, I thought I should mention it: You compile parts of a program that result in binary files. These files are then linked together to an executable in a second step. So in theory you...

Re: TimeDate stamp in Property Edit

Thank you once again! :) Perhaps one final question (although I'm afraid I might be getting in over my head here): Since older Delphi versions don't provide the correct compilation TimeDate stamp in the PE header, but it appears the correct TimeDate stamp data is actually included elsewhere in the e...

Re: TimeDate stamp in Property Edit

Hello Maël! Thank you so much for your helpful reply!!! :D You can get the official PE-file format specification from MS. For TimeDateStamp it says: The low 32 bits of the number of seconds since 00:00 January 1, 1970 (a C run-time time_t value), that indicates when the file was created. The PropEd...

TimeDate stamp in Property Edit

Hello Maël! I hope you won't mind my posting a non-HxD question here. I'm not a programmer, but just a self-taught computer hardware/software hobbyist, and I've enjoyed trying out your HxD Hex Editor and your Property Edit program. I've even started a small list of questions and suggestions re HxD (...
