Using "VERSION=" in a .pro-file generates a <target>_resource.rc. The Version-Inf inside lacks a Translation-Entry and is not used by windows.
The following patch improves the generation of the Version-inf:
- adding a Translation-Entry in the resource
- provides RC_LANG and RC_CODEPAGE to change the default translation (so, setting RC_LANG=0x0407 in a .pro-file gives a german translation-entry)
- rename <target>_resource.rc to <target>_version.rc, that describes imho better whats inside this rc-file
the patch should apply to 4.7.4 and 4.7.3
