Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I create WMI script to check a file version in the remote host as below.
SELECT * FROM CIM_DataFile where name ='C:\\AAA\\BBB\\XXXXXXX_XXXXX.dll'
For Each objFile in colFiles
    Wscript.Echo objFile.Version
But Running it. I found that it returned blank.
So When I checked by using WMI Query Analyzer.I found it returned Null data.
But Right-Clicking that file and looking into the properties.I can confirm the file version and product version.
Are there any difference between the version of datefile_class and file properties?
