Getting VS_VERSIONINFO from within the DLL that contains it

I'm writing a DLL to be called from another program of my own.  I need to keep close watch on the DLL build version that end-users have on their machines.  How do I get at the DLL's own VS_VERSIONINFO from within it so that I can return bits of it as properties to my calling program so as to blow a whistle if it doesn't see what it expects?

Hi there Roytal, this looks exactly what I'm after but the client has shoved me bodily onto something else and I won't be able to look at it for a few more days.

But thanks for responding so comprehensively.  I'll be back!
