VersionInfo is a small component, designed to plug-in in the Power++ component bar. This component allows you to retrieve the version informations, stored in EXE and DLL files. All you need is drag the component to your form(s) and use the appropriate Get... functions.
It can retrieve the version information of the own application, or any other win-32 file who has such a version resource embedded.
Unzip the zip-file in a temporary directory. The use the "Add-Component" menuitem from Power++ to add it to the "System" components. (You must specify the Install directory)
If you have proceeded correctly, then you will now see this icon on the toolbar.
For a detailed description of the functionality offered by this component, look at the verinfo.hlp file, who is installed in the <power>\system directory. Actually you will see the properties available in the reference cards, but you will not be able to get online access to the helpfile. There seem to exist some problems with helpfiles and native components.
Currently we have only one places to download the VersionInfo software.

All users who like to add functionality to this module are invited to join in the developpment. If you make enhancements then send the changes back, so others can proffit of the enhancements too.
Due to the API used, teh version info utility can only determine the version info when the file has a win-32 style resource. (Sorry, no 16-bit). If anyone would like to improve this... ASchild@neatech.ch
