program version information

How (little example please) can I make the program information visible inside the application (ex. about or dialogbox).  The information I'm talking about is the program name, buildversion, fileversion, company name, ... (see menu project, options, version info).

I know you can see it in the property (version page) of the EXE file, but I want to use it inside the application.

All solutions welcome.

Thanks, Dirk.

In my site there's a demo application that will teach you how to extract version information form biary files. The URL is:

http://www.bhnet.com.br/~simonet/howtoprojs.htm 

Download the project entitled " How to extract Version information from EXEs, DLLs, VXDs, etc... ". It's 134Kb and full source code is included.

Alex,

I download your example.  It works fine.  When I use your example program to make the versioninformation of my program visible all I get is Fyletype, Operatingsystem and productversion.  All the others (comment, companyname, ...) are not visible.  In your example program with your own program selected they are all visible.  I have put the information in project, options, version.  What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,
Dirk.

IT happens that comment, companyname, etc is not being added to the EXE. Try rebuild (do a Build all) the application whose version info is missing.
