FileVer Examples

Example: Determine the version of Internet Explorer

Some applications are not able to correctly determine the version number of various types of upgraded files. FileVer determines the version numbers of applications by examining the header information in the upgraded file. In this example, to determine the version number of Microsoft Internet Explorer, first append the path environment variable to include the Support Tools directory:

path= %PATH%;c:\program files\support tools

Change directories to the Internet Explorer directory:

cd c:\program files\internet explorer

Then, run FileVer by typing the following:

filever \v iexplore.exe

FileVer displays version information about Microsoft Internet Explorer similar to the following:
