ProgVersion is string
ProgVersion = ExeInfo(exeVersion, "Appli.exe")
IF ProgVersion <> "2.0A" THEN
Error("Invalid program version")
END
WINDEVUser code (UMC)
// Retrieve the application name (without the full path)
ProgName = ExeInfo("OriginalFilename", "App.exe")
// The executable was not renamed
ProgName = fExtractPath(ExeInfo(exeName), fFile + fExtension)
WINDEVUser code (UMC)
sExeDir is string
IF InTestMode() = True THEN
// In test mode, return the runtime directory

END
Syntax
<Result> = ExeInfo(<Keyword> [, <Executable name>])
<Result>: Character string
  • Requested information.
  • Empty string ("") if there is no information or if the function failed.
<Keyword>: String constant
Information to retrieve:
exeCompanyName entered for the company when creating the executable.

exeDescriptionDescription supplied with the program
Java Version of JRE (Java Runtime Environment) with which the current application is run.
Universal Windows 10 App This constant is not available.
Linux This constant only operates with the PC SOFT libraries or executables.
exeDirectoryDirectory of executable (without the final \ but with the ":")
Java This constant is not available.
If this constant is specified, <Result> can correspond to:
  • empty string ("") if the application was manually started by the user.
  • the exePushNotification constant if the application was automatically started by the system further to the reception of a push notification.
  • the exeInBackground constant if the application was started in the background (detection of group of Beacons or during geolocation tracking).
  • the exeGeoTracking constant if the application was started in the background during the geolocation tracking. For more details, see Geolocation tracking.

Program execution mode

To get the program execution mode, use the exeMode constant:
ProgMode = ExeInfo(exeMode)
The function result can correspond to:
  • "16" if the Windows program is compiled in 16 bits,
  • "32" if the Windows program is compiled in 32 bits,
  • "64" if the Windows program is compiled in 64 bits,
  • "DOS" if the program is a DOS program,
  • an empty string ("") if the program is not an executable.
