Asking For Program Versions

Recommended Posts

Guest Joerg


What is the best way to ask for a Version of a program in a Skript?

I want to install the Update 6.02 for Adobe Reader and this Update should only be installed if the Version 6.01 is installed.

My suggestion was to aks for a registry key (RegRead), but i dont know if this is the best way.

You can try FileGetVersion function and test version of main executable AcroRd32.exe. Something like:

$ver = FileGetVersion ("C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe")
if StringLeft($ver, 5) == "6.0.1" then 
{install new}
