I'm assuming it used to just be in the RC file in the past.  Didn't look
in the history to trace it back.  But now it is generated and put in
setup_version.c as a global constant setup_version.

setup.exe is packed with upx.  If you want to see the version string I
suppose you could unpack it with upx.

Of course!  Why didn't I think of that?

strings setup*.exe | grep setup-version

This returns the version for a _decompressed_ setup executable.
