I need to find a way to determine which version of Microsoft Access an access fil e is? I know how to open an access file, but not to determine which version the .mdb file is. I need to know how to do this in C#.

 OleDbConnection con = new OleDbConnection(@"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\mydatabase.mdb;User Id=admin;Password=jinkies;");
 
    try
    {
        con.Open();
    }
    catch
    {
        Console.WriteLine("DB Open failed!");
    }
