How to read the version details programatically.
I have created version details from Version.rc file.
Now I want to read these details in my code so as to display it in About message box.
which type of files you used to store for version info in resource file?
Why don't you simply use Qt's system for it: QApplication has several methods to set version details, and even qmake supports the needed variables.
I would follow Andre's advice.
But if you really need to put version information in your application or DLL, you should use "VerQueryValue":http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms647464(v=vs.85).aspx Be aware of
bq. you must first call the GetFileVersionInfoSize function, and then the GetFileVersionInfo function.
