Watch Question

does this work?

        Dim file As New IO.FileInfo(Application.ExecutablePath)
        If file.Exists Then
        End If

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts

Label1.Text = file.LastWriteTime.ToString

Should do the trick also

oops :) yeah your right Reclusive, showing a messagebox won't set the text on a label :)
