AutoIt - Get the Original Filename property of a file from file properties


Author Post Date Friday, 25 March 2016
FileGetVersion (“filename" [, "stringname"]) function is used to get the different property strings of a file. The “stringname” to get Original Filename is “OriginalFilename”.
In case of failure, the function returns "" (if string field not filled etc.) and sets @error flag to 1.

Example:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

;Assign the string name to retrive to a variable
$sStringName = "OriginalFilename"

;Retrieve the Original Filename property of windows default calculator application.
Local $sStringValue = FileGetVersion("calc.exe", $sStringName)

If Not @error Then
    ;Display the property value.
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $sStringValue)
Else
    ;If error, display an error message.
    MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "", "Error when getting " & '"' & $sStringName  & '"')
EndIf
