Function Reference


Retrieves version information for the specified file

#include <WinAPIRes.au3>
_WinAPI_GetFileVersionInfo ( $sFilePath, ByRef $pBuffer [, $iFlags = 0] )


$sFilePath The name of the file.
$pBuffer Returns a pointer to a memory block (buffer) that receives the file-version information.
Optionaly, you can set this parameter to 0 before function call, then the function will allocate the required memory block itself.
Otherwise, it must be a valid memory pointer returned by the _WinAPI_CreateBuffer() function, or by previously calling this function.
$iFlags [optional] The flags that controls which MUI DLLs (if any) from which the version resource is extracted.
It can be 0 or more of the following values (valid only for Windows Vista or later).

Return Value

Success: The number of bytes copied to the buffer.
Failure: 0, call _WinAPI_GetLastError() to get extended error information.


When you no longer need the buffer allocated by this function, you must call the _WinAPI_FreeMemory() function (do not use any other memory routines) to release occupied memory.


_WinAPI_CreateBuffer, _WinAPI_FreeMemory
