Greetings,
I need to be able to retrieve the software versions for solfs and soldisk. Not the file version. I thought GetVersion would give this but it seems to give the same as the GetDriverStatus. It shows I am using 3.0. I need to be able to know if I am using 1.5.108 vs 1.5.116 as an example. How can I do this?

Mmm, 3.0 is the major part of version number for CallbackDisk but this is not anything valid for SolFS.

The version number in X.Y.Z.T sequence is the X.Y.Z part (the T part is incremented automatically) and it is the same for all modules of the product. So GetDriverStatus returns exactly what you are looking for.

Please re-check the exact value of what is returned by GetDriverStatus and post the value here.


Sincerely yours

StorageGetVersion

StorageGetDriversStatus (file system driver)
Driver (ver 3.0.0.0) installed

196608 translates to 3.0 as well.

Does this look better?
StorageGetDriversStatus (disk driver)
Driver (ver 512.2.116.40936) installed

Unfortunately all of this doesn't look correct.

What does explorer show if you right-click on the driver file and open Properties dialog? There will be Version (or similar) tab with version information there.

Also, what version do you suppose to have installed? I.e. is it definitely a public 1.5 version from the site or ...?


Sincerely yours

I was making a boneheaded mistake. Thanks.
