HI,

hmmh I don't know what kb Article Number is, but maybe this helps a little bit.

$path = @DesktopDir & "\AutoitVersion.exe"; put your path here!
If FileExists($path) Then
    $t = FileGetTime($path, 1);1 = created
    If Not @error Then $yyyymd = $t[0] & "/" & $t[1] & "/" & $t[2]
    MsgBox(64, "File Info", FileGetAttrib($path) & @CR & FileGetVersion($path) _
             & @CR & FileGetLongName($path) & FileGetShortcut($path) & @CR & FileGetSize($path) & " Bytes" & @CR & _
            "created : " & $yyyymd)
EndIf

So long,

Mega

Can you supply a file with a KB article number in its property?

I wrote this awhile ago. It is able to get a lot of the information in the Advanced Properties tab.

Get Extended Property: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=25859

EDIT:

If the KB article number is in the version property you would do:

#include <extprop.au3>
$path = FileOpenDialog("Select a file to read attributes",@ScriptDir,"All (*.*)")
$prop = _GetExtProperty($path,34)
MsgBox(0,"KB Aritcle Number:", "Property #34: "&$prop&@CRLF)

Yea, it seems like Microsoft is using a weird property system for those files.

However, the country code and the KB Article number are right there in the file name name. Just parse the file name for the two things you need.

#include <array.au3>
$path = FileOpenDialog("Select a file to read attributes",@ScriptDir,"All (*.*)")
$filename = StringTrimLeft($path,StringInStr($path, "\", 0, -1))
$Kb = StringMid($filename, (StringInStr($filename, "KB", 0)+2), 6)
$Country = StringTrimRight(StringTrimLeft($filename, (StringLen($filename)-7)), 4)
MsgBox(0, "Info", "KB: "&$Kb&@CRLF&"Country: "&$Country)

I've been looking around trying to find a way to retrieve those extended file properties... but have yet to find anything.

This MSDN describes its structure but it is of no help to our current problem:

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=824686

Several pages talk about retreiving KB numbers of already installed patches.. but nothing about how to access that file property.

I'll look some later but it isnt looking good so far on my end.
