Description
Steps to reproduce:

1. Download JRE offline installer (-s or non -s)
2. Right click on the .exe, and select properties
3. Notice there is no "Version" tab

Do the same steps for the online installer .exe, and you'll see a "Version" tab.

The "Version" tab is helpful for development/debugging purposes.  All other JRE .exe's and installer .exe's have a version tab.  The offline wrapper was introduced in 5.0u6, when we created the offline wrapper for sponsor support.  Though this is not a regression, because using the installshield wrapper didn't have a "Version" tab either.

EVALUATION

The fix should be some simple .rc/Makefile work.
