Sfx Copyright Option not working as expected

description

working with zip.SaveSelfExtractor and SelfExtractorSaveOptions. I found if I set the following:
 
Dim opt As New Ionic.Zip.SelfExtractorSaveOptions()
opt.Flavor = Ionic.Zip.SelfExtractorFlavor.ConsoleApplication
opt.IconFile = "C:\temp\my.ico"
opt.Description = "This is a fun archive"
opt.Copyright = "This is a new Copyright"
opt.ProductVersion = "4.3.2"
opt.ProductName = "SomethingFun"
opt.FileVersion = New System.Version("1.2.3.4")
 
After I save the .exe and check the file in explorer, the copyright does not get set. All the other attributes are set just fine, but not the copyright.

Yes - well.... in my original design, I included a copyright for the Extractor (my code) and appended the copyright fromn the Options.

The problem is that in the property sheet in Windows Explorer, you can see only the first 26 characters or so, so it seems like there is no change in the copyright at all. This seems broken, so I will fix it.

I will no longer have dotNetZip insist on inserting its own copyright at all. In the future if you set the copyright with the options, it will display properly, as you expect.
