"File version" column not showing data

Post by mshubes »

Added a column with property "file version" and it does not show any data. (I use this as a default column in Windows file explorer.) Why doesn't xyplorer show the file version?

Hit F12 to show the info panel. Switch to the version tab of it.
When an .exe file is selected, you see that version in the topmost line, correct?

In that case I assume it's a bug. I've tried out the last 5 major version releases and none of them shows any version info with that column...

The current workaround would be: Use a custom column with a script: return property("FileVersion", <cc_item>);
and set it to the required file types (.exe, .dll, ...)

20.90.0300, also checked on 20.90.0201 and on fresh profile.
I'm on Win 7 x64 if it matters.

Thank you, highend! I know NOTHING about the scripting, but this worked for me!

Just a note, I did open the info panel, and under version, it says "file type has no version info," which is obviously incorrect as both Windows file explorer and your script displays it just fine. Thanks for the workaround fix!

If yes, which version exactly?
