Hi Miklos,

yes, thanks, that might be a practible way at this time.

Nevertheless - it is not a solution for the future.

I guess, there should be an implementation of the original product name,
version-number (major and minor) and actuall product name.

This should be easy accessible even for unexpierienced macro developers.

I will do a feature request or this :)

best regards
