Using the Process.FileVersionInfo property
Test and Monitor | Posted February 04, 2008

The Process object has a new FileVersionInfo property. It returns the full version number of the executable file that corresponds to a process. The peculiarity of this property is that depending on the situation, it can act either as a string or as an object. That is, if a text value is supposed to be used, it returns a string having the major_number.minor_number.build_number.private_number format. In other cases, it behaves like an object that has its own sub properties that return version number parts: major, minor, build and private numbers.

Here is a code snippet that demonstrates how to use the Process.FileVersionInfo property:
