Hi Tom

The following functions should do it for you.

(GetDllVersion is defined at the bottom.)

type
  TVersionNumber = Record
    MS1          : Word;
    MS2          : Word;
    LS1          : Word;
    LS2          : Word;
  end;

function GetTUtilVersion: string;
var
  VerRec: TVersionNumber;
begin
  // VerRec structure is filled, AND a string is returned.
  Result := GetDllVersion(VerRec, 'TUTIL32.DLL');
end;

function GetBdeVersion: string;
var
  Registry : TRegistry;
      BDEDir : String;
  VerRec: TVersionNumber;
begin
  // VerRec structure is filled, AND a string is returned.

      Registry := TRegistry.Create;
      Registry.RootKey := HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE;
      If Registry.OpenKey('Software\Borland\Database Engine', FALSE) then
      begin
            BDEDir := Registry.ReadString('DLLPATH');
            while (Pos(';', BDEDir) > 0) do
                  BDEDir := Copy(BDEDir, Pos(';', BDEDir) + 1, MaxInt);

            if BDEDir[length(BDEDir)] <> '\' then
                  BDEDir := BDEDir + '\';
            BDEDir := BDEDir + 'Idapi32.dll';
    Result := GetDllVersion(VerRec, BDEDir);
      end
      else
    Result := '';
      Registry.Free;
end;

function GetDllVersion(var VerRec : TVersionNumber; TheDllName: string): string;
type
   PFixedFileInfo = PVSFixedFileInfo;
var
  UTVerInfo : Pointer;
  PFixedInfo : Pointer;
  VerInfoSize : DWORD;
  VerHandle : DWORD;
  RetLen : Integer;
  FileNulStr : DBITBLNAME;
begin
  VerInfoSize := GetFileVersionInfoSize(StrPCopy(FileNulStr, TheDllName), VerHandle);
  If VerInfoSize > 0 then
  begin
    GetMem(UTVerInfo, VerInfoSize);
    GetFileVersionInfo(
       FileNulStr,
       VerHandle,
       VerInfoSize,
       UTVerInfo);
    VerQueryValue(UTVerInfo, '\' , PFixedInfo, RetLen);
    VerRec.MS1 := HIWORD(PFixedFileInfo(PFixedInfo)^.dwFileVersionMS);
    VerRec.MS2 := LOWORD(PFixedFileInfo(PFixedInfo)^.dwFileVersionMS);
            VerRec.LS1 := HIWORD(PFixedFileInfo(PFixedInfo)^.dwFileVersionLS);
            VerRec.LS2 := LOWORD(PFixedFileInfo(PFixedInfo)^.dwFileVersionLS);
            Result := IntToStr(VerRec.MS1) + '.' +
                                          IntToStr(VerRec.MS2) + '.' +
                                          IntToStr(VerRec.LS1) + '.' +
                                          IntToStr(VerRec.LS2);
            FreeMem(UTVerInfo, VerInfoSize);
      end
      else
    Result := '';
end;

Hi Tom,
Thanks, but I can't take all the credit.  We use this code in our company, and I didn't write it originally, although I did fix 2 bugs that it had.

Cheers,
JB
