Returns the "File" version information.

FileGetVersion ( "filename" [,"stringname"] )


filename Filename to check.

stringname [optional] name of the field to be retried from the header version file info.

Return Value

Success: Returns a string containing the version information, e.g. "".

Failure: Returns "" if no version information (or other error) or "" when retrieving a stringname, and sets @error to 1.


stringname can be the basic one as :

Comments, InternalName, ProductName, CompanyName, LegalCopyright, ProductVersion,

FileDescription, LegalTrademarks, PrivateBuild, FileVersion, OriginalFilename, SpecialBuild
