AutoIt - Get the Version of a file from file properties


Author Post Date Friday, 25 March 2016
We will have to get file property strings for various purposes and the function FileGetVersion (“filename" [, "stringname"]) is used for this. The optional “stringname” parameters is used to specify the name of string field to be retrieved.
If “stringname” is not specified, it returns the version information. The version number returns in the format of "#.#.#.#" and if no version information (or other error), it returns "0.0.0.0"and sets @error flag to 1.

Example:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

;Retrieve the version of the windows default calculator application.
Local $sVersion = FileGetVersion("calc.exe")

If Not @error Then
    ;Display the version.
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $sVersion)
Else
    ;If error, display an error message.
    MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "", "Error when getting version")
EndIf
