Script to find other file attributes

I have the following script which I use to find the version of all the dll's and exe's in a directory. I use the re-direct ">" to write it to a text file.

I now have an app that is cross-linking between two vendors and "blowing" it up. What I'd like to do is get not only the version, but the other attributes like Company, internal name and some of the other attributes you see when you right click an exe and look at the version tab.

I want to pull down the list and then from there do an install of the offending app and see what I get afterward.
strComputer = "CompName"
 
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
 
Set colFileList = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("ASSOCIATORS OF {Win32_Directory.Name='C:\MyPath\'} Where " _
        & "ResultClass = CIM_DataFile")
 
For Each objFile In colFileList
    If objFile.Extension = "dll" or  objFile.Extension = "exe"  Then
        Wscript.Echo objFile.Name & " -- " & objFile.Version
    End If
Next
