           Summary: System.Diagnostics.FileVersionInfo.FileVersion fails
                    with non-managed binaries
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Runtime
           Version: 2.4.x

I built an application that fetches the file version information from various
binaries, both managed and non-managed. On Windows, you can use
System.Diagnostics.FileVersionInfo's FileVersion string to get this for both
managed and non-managed binaries. In Mono, this seems to work only for managed
binaries, and is blank for non-managed ones. However, Mono can get the
information if you piece together all of the individual version components for
a non-managed binary:

FileVersionInfo fvi = FileVersionInfo.GetVersionInfo(path);
r = "Version=";
//r += fvi.FileVersion; // does not work in Mono, is blank
r += Convert.ToString(fvi.FileMajorPart);
r += "." + Convert.ToString(fvi.FileMinorPart);
r += "." + Convert.ToString(fvi.FileBuildPart);
r += "." + Convert.ToString(fvi.FilePrivatePart);

Can FileVersion be fixed? Thank you.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
See details
Actual Results:  
System.Diagnostics.FileVersionInfo.FileVersion is blank with non-managed

Expected Results:  
System.Diagnostics.FileVersionInfo.FileVersion should have the file version
string assembled from the individual version components that ARE populated.
