Topic - Sealing Wooden Windows

A quick question for the UKC DIY expertise (can't find a convincing answer on YouTube):

I am working on my wooden windows and have to replace some of the wooden beading strips at the bases of several windows. In a lot of cases water has got down the back of these and rotted the main window frame below so I want to make a proper seal this time.

What is the best way to seal a beading strip? Some people seem to use putty, and others use silicone sealant. The former seems to me to be more long-lasting but harder to actually work and it inevitably dries and cracks anyway.

Thanks

Alan
