PowerShell can not get the correct file version RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    I am now doing sth. converting vbscript to poershell. in vbscript using  strFileVersion = objFSO.GetFileVersion() method can get the correct version of c:\windows\system32\httpapi.dll. That is 6.1.7601.17514.  

    I convert this method to powershell, I got the misleading version. That is 6.1.7600.16385. PowerShell script is as follows.


    Does anyone know why? Thanks!

  • You should get the ProductPrivatePart to get the correct version...

    (gci httpapi.dll).versioninfo.productprivatepart

    If you want the complete output...

    $a = (gci httpapi.dll).versioninfo
    [string]$a.productmajorpart + "." + [string]$a.productminorpart + "." + [string]$a.productprivatepart
