Are exe file properties filled with necessary data ? (version, product name, company name)

The filename of the current exe download is: gnucash-3.4.setup.exe
When I right-click on the file, then go to |Properties |Details |, I see the following:
File description: GnuCash Setup
Type: Application
File version:
Product name: GnuCash

Is that what you're asking about? In case it's not, I tried to attach the actual file, but it was far too large for your system to accept..

This is the setup file => Rejection by SUMo is as expected.

What about the program main exe file ?

But what about exe file properties (like you did for the setup file) ?

The gnucash icon in the menus reports the location of the program file as:
     "C:\Program Files (x86)\gnucash\bin\gnucash.exe"
When I right-click on the file, then go to |Properties |Details |, I see the following:

Does that cover what you needed?

OK, looks fine. What happens if you drag'n'drop this main exe onto SUMo ?

drag'n'drop is something I've never done except to move a file or an email from one folder to another. Are you talking about having both Sumo and Windows Explorer open and dragging the gnucash.exe file to a certain spot inside the Sumo window to drop it? If so, where within the Sumo window do I drop it?

(I can't experiment with it right now, because the other problem I had written about re-appeared, and my computer felt like it was full of molasses. So earlier today I uninstalled Sumo and a couple of other suspect programs, and have been tracking down and deleting remnants as I had time. I hope to get Sumo reinstalled by the end of the week. Before that, I've got to get some other work done.)

Yes just drop anywhere on the main window.

I thought I had just entered a reply a few minutes ago, but I don't see it now.
I finally got Sumo re-installed a little while ago, and saw that GnuCash shows up now. So I didn't try drag-n-drop with that. But I did look around and found another program I use very frequently (but which rarely has a need for updates), NoteTab Pro. (That's from a Swiss company called Fookes Holdings, and is extremely useful for creating and managing straight-text files.) I found the exe file for that and dragged that into the Sumo window, and everything appears to have worked fine.

Thank you.
