How to get file version

How to get the thrid number of a file version.

Example: Let's say I have a file with below properties.

I want only the third number like here it is 1941 as highlighted.

Is there any built in function to get it??

You can use StringSplit for splitting the return of FileGetVersion:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Example()

Func Example()
    ; Retrieve the file version of the AutoIt executable.
    Local $sFileVersion = FileGetVersion(@AutoItExe)
    Local $aSplit=StringSplit($sFileVersion,'.')
    If IsArray($aSplit) Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $aSplit[3])
EndFunc   ;==>Example

yeah I tried the below one and working.Used the inputs from Anoop.

 

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

$sFilePath = FileOpenDialog("Select a file to read attributes",@ScriptDir,"All (*.*)")
MsgBox(0,$sFilePath,getFileVersionBuildNumber($sFilePath))

Func getFileVersionBuildNumber($sFilePath)

$sStringName = "FileVersion"
Local $sStringValue = FileGetVersion($sFilePath, $sStringName)

If Not @error Then
    ;Display the property value.
    $b = StringSplit ( $sStringValue, '.' )[3]
    return $b
Else
    ;If error, display an error message.
    MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "", "Error when getting " & '"' & $sStringName  & '"')
EndIf

EndFunc

      What's the best way to receive file from a desktop app?
      app.exe will execute a cmd with "au3file.exe /path/of/the/file.xml" and the au3file.exe will get and delete that. Or else? THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE QUESTION
      And best way to transfer file to a desktop app?
      au3file.exe do a $_POST request and the app.exe MUST HAVE a local HTTP server that can receive $_POST, but it looks heavy 'cause the app must have a server such XAMPP. au3file.exe execute a cmd with "app.exe /path/of/the/file.xml" and the app.exe will now get that file and delete. Or else?

      Good evening everyone
      I'm working on this little project for a week, and, what I'm trying to do could be useful for many users as well...
      I'm trying to do a "Report Generator", which reads the data that have to report from a text file (.txt) formatted with this pattern;
      Data1;Data2;Data3;Data4;Data5;;

      YES, there are 2 semi-colon at the end of the line.

      In detail, Data1 is a date/time stamp with this format: YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS ;

      When the script starts, the user is prompted to choose 2 dates which I'll call as:
      Report_Date_Start; Report_Date_Start. So, the report, should cover all dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End.

      And, already at this point, I don't know how to do the query... How can I say to the script:
      SELECT * FROM (.txt) WHERE Data1 BETWEEN Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End; ?

      I thought that I could do a _DateDiff, but if the difference between the two dates is months and not days, how can I do the trick?
      Should I make a Switch...Case with the _DateDiff() and see then calculate all the dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End... But then, how can I compare the dates in the file with all the dates between Report_Date_Start AND Report_Date_End? I'm going crazy, I know...

      I've already made a "Export Tool", which exports the content of the .txt file in a .db, managed with SQLite... I mean, there I could easily do a query like I did above the thread, but, this "export", for 1080 rows, takes 28 seconds to be done. And, 1080 rows are daily rows that are added every day in the .txt file, so, in a week, the file could be easily 7000+ rows, which means that the "export" would take 3 minutes to be done... And we can go over and over...
      I'll post just for be "complete" what I've done about the export, so, maybe, someone could say how to improve it in terms of efficency...

      [19:18] 
      I've been writing this post from 18:40 maybe...
      By the way, if @jchd or someone else could tell me if I can import a formatted .txt file in SQLite and then, do queries on the DB, I'd be very happy for that...
      About the report in PDF, I'm talking with @taietel in order to know how to create a PDF.
      I hope someone will help me
      Sorry for the "long" list of questions...
      Thank you for everything you've done for me
      I have to say that this is the community of programming language that I've loved most!
      By the way, I'll be back tomorrow in the morning ( ~ 9:15 a.m. Italian time ), so, excuse me if I can't answer before that time.
      Hope you guys have a wonderful day/night.

      Thanks again

      We can get a list of file using the below code.
      Local $aFileList = _FileListToArray(@DesktopDir, "*") Is there any option to use the above one recursively to get sub folders and their contents also.??
      And also, is there any way to serialize the above array locally to some file and load it later when we want in another program on another machine so that we can compare its contents with a folder in different machine, which is not network connected also.?

      Hi, I have a 2D array with 2 columns, the 1st column contains a "version string" and the 2nd column contains a generic string. I want to sort it in the descending order so the latest version comes first.
      #include <Array.au3> Local $aVersionsAndReleases[4][2] = [["0.2.8.9", "Release #1"], ["0.2.9.10", "Release #3"], ["0.2.9.11", "Release #4"], ["0.2.8.10", "Release #2"]] _ArraySort($aVersionsAndReleases, 1) ConsoleWrite(_ArrayToString($aVersionsAndReleases, ' - ')) _ArrayDisplay($aVersionsAndReleases) Unfortunately, _ArraySort isn't working here . This is the output generated by the script:
      0.2.9.11 - Release #4 0.2.9.10 - Release #3 0.2.8.9 - Release #1 0.2.8.10 - Release #2 The expected result should be:
      0.2.9.11 - Release #4 0.2.9.10 - Release #3 0.2.8.10 - Release #2 0.2.8.9 - Release #1 I am looking to develop an function which does this... but I don't know where to start . Can someone help me get started? Thanks in Advance!

      In the present product I have version in the About section as  4 section one like (10.00.00.2456)
      And the version in other products I have version number like (97.000.2456 , 10.000.2345)
       
      Is there any UDF or function to convert 4 digit format to 3 digit one.?
      I need that for version comparison of different products.
