File Properties

9 posts in this topic

Go to your Excel.exe file, right click and select properties.

Click on the Details tab.

You will see:

File description Microsoft Office Excel

Type Application

File version 12.0.6514.5000

Product name 2007 Microsoft Office System

Product version 12.0.6514.0

Copyright 2006 Mic...

Size 17.4 MB

Date modified 8/17/2009 10:48 PM

Language Language Neutral

How do I get those attributes using a script?? (Mainly wanting Product Name and Product Version, can get file version using FileGetVersion function.)

I've tried using CIM_DataFile in winmgmts, but those aren't in there - or I don't know the right syntax to use.

The FileProperty UDF and it's GetExtProperty doesn't pull them - or I don't know the right number to use.

Right now I am using :

Func GetFileInfo($Filepath)
    ; rebuild path from remote path for query purposes
    $ct = StringInStr($Filepath, "\", 0, 3)
    $Filepath = StringTrimLeft($Filepath, $ct)
    $Filepath = StringReplace($Filepath, "\", "\\")
    $Filepath = StringReplace($Filepath, "c$", "C:")
    ; <---- rebuild path for query

    $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $strPCName & "\root\cimv2")
    $WQLquery = "Select * from CIM_DataFile Where Name = '" & $Filepath & "'"

    ;MsgBox(0,"Query",$WQLquery) ; - checking the query

    $ofileinfo = $objWMIService.ExecQuery($WQLquery)
    If @error Then
        MsgBox(0, "WMI Error", "Error on objget $oWMI")
    EndIf
    For $ofile In $ofileinfo
        $FileDesc = $ofile.Description
        $FileCap = $ofile.Caption
        $Filever = $ofile.Version
        $Filesize = $ofile.FileSize
        $Filemod = $ofile.LastModified
        $FileCreated = $ofile.CreationDate
        $FileAccess = $ofile.LastAccessed
        MsgBox(0, "File Info", $FileDesc & @CRLF & $FileCap & @CRLF & $Filever & @CRLF & $Filesize & @CRLF & $Filemod & @CRLF & $FileCreated & @CRLF & $FileAccess)
    Next
EndFunc   ;==>GetFileInfo

Resulting in:

c:\program files\microsoft office\office11\excel.exe

c:\program files\microsoft office\office11\excel.exe

11.0.8316

10352448

20091008144442.000000-300

20091008144442.000000-300

20100204090123.861704-360

and

$Office = _GetExtProperty($file, 33)
$Product = _GetExtProperty($file, 31)
$Version = FileGetVersion($file)
$Results = $Results & "Outlook," & $Product & "," & $Version & @CRLF

$Office is showing up as "Excel"

$Product is showing "0"

$Version is showing like "11.0.8316.0"

Wow, these things get buried quick.

I think there was a UDF or snippit posted that would pull lots of file info and put it into a 2d array. I swear I used it in some script, but can't find it again.

The WMI stuff I've found seems to be very limited - or restricted to what info it pulls. I did find FileSystemFile, but it seems to only be through Configuration Manager???

Graywalker,

I have used code like this to successfully read file properties in XP and Vista:

; Object code modified from original by Simulcal & PsaltyDS

Func _Read_File_Properties($sPassed_File_Name)

    Local  $iError = 0
    
    Local $sDir_Name = StringRegExpReplace($sPassed_File_Name, "(^.*\\)(.*)", "\1")
    Local $sFile_Name = StringRegExpReplace($sPassed_File_Name, "^.*\\", "")

    Local $sDOS_Dir = FileGetShortName($sDir_Name, 1)

    Local $oShellApp = ObjCreate("shell.application")
    If IsObj($oShellApp) Then
        Local $oDir = $oShellApp.NameSpace($sDOS_Dir)
        If IsObj($oDir) Then
            Local $oFile = $oDir.Parsename($sFile_Name)
            If IsObj($oFile) Then

                $sFile_Property = $oDir.GetDetailsOf($oFile, ##) ; Insert number for property required

            Else
                $iError = 3
            EndIf
        Else
            $iError = 2
        EndIf
    Else
        $iError = 1
    EndIf

    If $iError > 0 Then
        Local $sMsg = "Could not read File Properties" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                $iError & @CRLF & @CRLF & $sPassed_File_Name
        MsgBox(0, "Error", $sMsg)
    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>_Read_File_Properties

The necessary property codes are as follows (according to t'InterWeb):

Yes, it DID! Thank you!

So, what I did was :

For $i = 0 To 266
$properties = _GetExtProperty($file, $i)
$Results = $Results & $i & " : " & $properties & @CRLF
Next
FileWrite($LogFile, $strPCName & @CRLF & $Results)

Which tells me that Product Name is under 263 and Product Verison is 264.

So, for anyone who wants to pull the file info - use that loop to find what attribute numbers you need!! They probably go past 266... ?? :huggles:

Hi, Both the fact that no ones been active on this topic for a long time and my question are a long shot.

I just wanted to know if anyone knows anything about getting extended file properties from a file located on a network? Is it even possible, because I'm trying and I am just getting COM errors?

So if anyone knows anything can you please let me know as soon as possible!

Thanks

See if this function works for you, it searches for the file property by its name, rather than by its number.

Func _FileGetProperty(Const $S_PATH, Const $S_PROPERTY = "") ; Function used to get file properties that can't be read from the file tags.
    Local Const $objShell = ObjCreate("Shell.Application")
    If Not FileExists($S_PATH) Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    Local Const $S_FILE = StringTrimLeft($S_PATH, StringInStr($S_PATH, "", 0, -1))
    Local Const $S_DIR = StringTrimRight($S_PATH, StringLen($S_FILE) + 1)
    If @error Then Return SetError(3, 0, 0)
    Local Const $objFolder = $objShell.NameSpace($S_DIR)
    Local Const $objFolderItem = $objFolder.Parsename($S_FILE)
    If $S_PROPERTY Then
        For $I = 0 To 300
            If $objFolder.GetDetailsOf($objFolder.Items, $I) = $S_PROPERTY Then Return $objFolder.GetDetailsOf($objFolderItem, $I)
        Next
        Return SetError(2, 0, 0)
    EndIf
    Local $av_ret[1][2] = [[1]]
    For $I = 0 To 300
        If $objFolder.GetDetailsOf($objFolder.Items, $I) Then
            ReDim $av_ret[$av_ret[0][0] + 1][2]
            $av_ret[$av_ret[0][0]][0] = $objFolder.GetDetailsOf($objFolder.Items, $I)
            $av_ret[$av_ret[0][0]][1] = $objFolder.GetDetailsOf($objFolderItem, $I)
            $av_ret[0][0] += 1
        EndIf
    Next
    If Not $av_ret[1][0] Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0)
    $av_ret[0][0] -= 1
    Return $av_ret
EndFunc   ;==>_FileGetProperty

I found this function somewhere on the forums here and can't remember who originally wrote it, but it works well if you know the property name you're looking for. The names are different depending upon the version of Windows you're using.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
