Unable to read FileGetVersion()

Recommended Posts

I am having a weird issue.

Both my INI file and App1.exe properties version are 1.0.2345.17509

But when I validate, it gives me the msgbox "False". I also tried changing the Filegetversion() to RegRead but it is still the same.

I am not sure but could it be a false reading of binary digits?

Local $Test_LocalFile = "C:\Program Files\Test\App1.exe"
Local $Test_LocalFile_Ver = FileGetVersion($Test_LocalFile, "ProductVersion")
Local $Test_SourceFile_Ver = IniRead("c:\Test.ini", "Apps", "App1", "")

If $Test_LocalFile_Ver = $Test_SourceFile_Ver Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "True")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "", "False")
EndIf

Use the _VersionCompare function for comparing file versions.  

#include <Misc.au3>

Local $Test_LocalFile = "C:\Program Files\Test\App1.exe"
Local $Test_LocalFile_Ver = FileGetVersion($Test_LocalFile, "ProductVersion")
Local $Test_SourceFile_Ver = IniRead("c:\Test.ini", "Apps", "App1", "")

If _VersionCompare($Test_LocalFile_Ver, $Test_SourceFile_Ver) = 0 Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "True")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "", "False")
EndIf

@Jos, I am already running as #RequireAdmin.

@AdamUL, it give the same False result.

I have loads of other validations which are all correct. It is just this file which shows opposite result. 🤨

 

But when I change it as:

If _VersionCompare($Test_LocalFile_Ver, $Test_SourceFile_Ver) = 0 Or _VersionCompare($Test_LocalFile_Ver, $Test_SourceFile_Ver) = 1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "True")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "", "False")
EndIf

So _VersionCompare works in this case. But as per help file it as 3 validations which is why we can't put only = 0 and Else.

 0 - Both versions equal
 1 - Version 1 greater
-1 - Version 2 greater

 

End of the line, this works as per my need.

Thank you.

Make that elegant (only one function call):

; verbose
Local $res = _VersionCompare($Test_LocalFile_Ver, $Test_SourceFile_Ver)
Switch $res
    Case -1
        MsgBox(0, "", "Older")
    Case 0
        MsgBox(0, "", "Same")
    Else
        MsgBox(0, "", "Newer")
EndSwitch

; compact alternative
Local $res = _VersionCompare($Test_LocalFile_Ver, $Test_SourceFile_Ver)
MsgBox(0, "", $res < 0 ? "Older" : ($res = 0 ? "Same" : "Newer"))
