Here's how to edit the Version number of a 4D application compiled with 4D Engine that shows in the "Get Info" box from the Mac OS X Finder.

When an application is first built, it gives the 4D Engine version information in the "Get Info" box from the Mac OS X Finder. Open the application's package contents folder and edit the Info.plist file in the line <string>4D Engine 2003.3 4D SA, 1985-2004. All rights reserved.</string>. Replace the 4D Engine information with the built application information. Make a copy of the application after the info.plist data is changed to get the Get Info box to display the changed version information. This gives the operating system a chance to reset itself to recognize the changed information.
