Given only the EXE file, is there any way to determine what version of VC++ was used to build it?  There is no doubt that the EXE was built with VC++, but I need to know with what version.

If this can't be determined from the EXE alone, is there a particular file (or set of files) that I can examine on the computer to which this EXE was ultimately deployed to make the determination?

If you have VC++, use

dumpbin.exe /headers file.exe

The 'Optional Header Values' contain the Linker version, which resembles the VC++ version number.

Hi!

Depenency Viewer (depends.exe) which comes along with MsVisualC++ gives information about linker version. I think that it may be what You are looking for.
