Using #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Fileversion info in script

7 posts in this topic

I use the #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Fileversion and #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_FileVersion_AutoIncrement compiler directives and find them very useful. Is there a way that I can determine the AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_FileVersion value at runtime from within the script?

I recognize that if I'm running a compiled .EXE I can get the version number by using FileGetVersion(@ScriptFullPath), but I want to be able to find this value whether I'm running script or an EXE. I would think it should be available, since it's sitting right there in the script; I just don't know how to read it.

You'd have to set a variable inside the script that is set to the current version. You'd have to manually update this variable every time your script's version is changed.


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.

I thought of that, but it defeats the purpose of the #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_FileVersion_AutoIncrement directive. There's gotta be a way...

I'm going to investigate using the #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Before directive together with the %fileversion% variable to store this information somewhere -- an INI file or the Registry or something. Still too kludgy for my liking.

I'm pretty sure that the #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Before directive is only acted on when you're compiling the script, not when you're running it from SciTE.

Kinda messy....but just an idea.

#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Outfile=test.exe
#AutoIt3Wrapper_UseUpx=n
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Comment=test
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Fileversion=1.0.0.2
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Fileversion_AutoIncrement=y
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
If @Compiled = 1 Then
;filegetversion...
$ver = FileGetVersion(@ScriptFullPath)
MsgBox(0, "Version", "Version " & $ver)
Else
$file = FileOpen(@ScriptFullPath, 0)
If $file = -1 Then
  MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
  Exit
EndIf
; Read in lines of text until the EOF is reached
While 1
  Local $line = FileReadLine($file)
  If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
  If StringInStr($line, "#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Fileversion=") Then
   $ver = StringRight($line, 7)
   MsgBox(0, "Version", "Version " & $ver)
   ExitLoop
  EndIf
  ;MsgBox(0, "Line read:", $line)
WEnd
FileClose($file)
EndIf

IniRead() anyone?

#cs
[FileVersion]
#ce

#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Fileversion=1.0.0.2
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****

MsgBox(0, "Version:", _GetVersion())

Func _GetVersion()
    If @Compiled Then
        Return FileGetVersion(@AutoItExe)
    Else
        Return IniRead(@ScriptFullPath, "FileVersion", "#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Fileversion", "0.0.0.0")
    EndIf
EndFunc
