The syntax for the SETVER command is as follows:
setver [drive:path] filename version
Where [drive:path] refers to the drive and the path of SETVER, not the
filename that will follow it. When using the SETVER /? help menu, this
syntax is not at first apparent. The following example adds the file
setver c:\dos c:\program.exe 4.01
SETVER may return the error:
ERROR: Missing parameter.
