Delphi compiler versions

Is there an easy way to determine which version of Delphi an executable was compiled by.
     
     Thanks Paul.

i dont think its compiled in .
if its one of your exe's you could store the compiler version in the version info of the file (under project options) then use GetFileVersionInfo() api in another program to retreive it.

I think you can use:

procedure ShowVersion ;
begin
{$IFDEF VER130}
ShowMessage( 'Delphi 5' ) ;
{$ENDIF}
{$IFDEF VER120}
ShowMessage( 'Delphi 4' ) ;
{$ENDIF}
{$IFDEF VER110}
ShowMessage( 'Delphi 3' ) ;
{$ENDIF}
{$IFDEF VER100}
ShowMessage( 'Delphi 2' ) ;
{$ENDIF}
{$IFDEF VER90}
ShowMessage( 'Delphi 1' ) ;
{$ENDIF}
end ;

I know that the Delphi 5 one is accurate, but the others may be wrong...

Good luck finding out! :O)

Tim.
