I think Andreas points to the "version information" that I suggested to
add to the *.rc file.

This gets compiled into the ressource section of the PE File (executable
or dll) on windows and you will see it when right clicking on the file
and selecting Properties -> Version. 

There are windows API's to query for a files version and it is typically 
used by setup programs to check if a newer version is already installed.

Beside the version there is also information about the vendor which
is for instance displayed by the windows firewall when the exe/image
tries to open a connection.
