How to read Windows Application File Properties Details
Is there a way to read Windows file properties? For instance, When you right click on an application and select Properties->Details. I would like to read in the fields such as:
I can write those values using the Windows resource compiler, but reading back once the application is built is not known.
Thanks in advance
Do you mean your running app reading it's own properties or other external files?
Either way this is OS specific stuff and not really Qt related.
Take a look at "GetFileVersionInfo":http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms647003.aspx and "VerQueryValue":http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms647464.aspx apis. There are good examples in the description and comments.
This is a question as to how to do something on Qt that is running on a Windows platform - I though this is the place to ask such questions, but we all have our opinions.
I am aware of the apis on the Win SDK. I was hoping there was a Qt solution that may have an alternate solution.
