Version properties in the build tab

Hi,
Is there a gupta function that can read the version properties in the
version tab of the Build Settings menu item? This will be used to compare
the version number of the application running on the client with the
ver.no.of the app. running on the server.

Thanks for any help.
Betul

"Is there a gupta function ..." - not that I am aware of. However, a co-worker
implemented this exact feature himself in an appl. we were developing some
years ago: the TD appl., upon login, would compare itself and its own current
version to that posted as the latest version in the db. If the db version was
newer, the appl. then prompted the user for permission and if yes, downloaded
the newer version(s) (application consisted of multiple EXE files) and then
restarted itself.

All the executable files were kept in the db with copies on each user's machine.

Best Regards,
