Is there any way I can get the MS Office Version for the machine on which the script is running without actually opening any Office file?
I mean thro' trhe script itself.
Check out the utilities in this post.. http://www.qaforums.com/cgi-bin/foru...=006194#000001
I'm not sure if those utils can get you the values you want, but I know the version info is kept in the Office .exe's (eg. winword.exe). You can view them through Explorer, maybe these utils can access them too. Maybe someone else here knows better.
You should be able to get this information from the registry.
Have you ever noticed? Anybody going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac.
In the post you sent, John had posted this :
Accessing file versions is often proprietary to an implementation. Ask your developers if that information is inserted into individual files and how to get at it, if it is.
Windows supports file version information in the file's properties view.
From Silk's perspective you could easily correlate a file's date and time stamp values to known versions.
