We are using the comments property for our DLLs.

In Windows XP it will show up in the file properties under "Comments".

In Windows 7 this field has been removed (or I can't find it). Is it possible to show its contents somehow?

Is it possible that the "Comments" property you're looking for in Windows Explorer is now named "File description" ?

No, description is still the same as it was in XP. Comments was listed under 'other version information'. – laktak Jan 21 '10 at 15:22
@chris: The Comments column is still there in the alphabetical list that you get with right-click on any column-header and choosing "More...", but doesn't seem to show anything. So either (1) In the Win7 Explorer MS has successfully destroyed it, or (2) It has been renamed. I didn't dare base an answer on the 1st possibility. – harrymc Jan 21 '10 at 19:32
"File description" is what is shown when the cursor hovers over a DLL in Explorer. – harrymc Jan 21 '10 at 19:34
