    Question File version check

    Hi,

    I was wondering if someone could help me out with a program I am coding. I need to be able to check if the file (DLL, OCX, EXE) I pass to the function has a version number attached to it. I am writing it in Windows but don't know much about programming for this enviroment.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am completely stuck.

    Thanks.

    maybe you should learn about the file formats. there are tons of docs about them out there. there also must be a function or something in the win32api.

    Maybe you can try the GetFileVersionInfoSize function.
