Get information from exe file

By wan_fai ·
Hi,

When we check the property of exe file in Windows Explorer, we can see product name, version, company name and so on. I want to get those information in my program. Can I do that through some API or COM?

Get information from exe file

Use Visual Studio to compile your application - there's a fill-in-the-blank type form that allows you to enter that information. Very easy...read the help in VS if you have trouble finding where to enter the info.

Hi,
As I understand your question, you are trying to find out the information that is in the Version Tab of an executable file's properties, from within another program.
Check the following url on MSDN

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/shellcc/platform/CommCtls/winui/finstlib_5vub.asp

There you'll find all the API necessary to query Version Information from an Win32 executable.
