Does anyone know a way to get a web page to check a file version on a
local PC.

For example the page needs to look at c:\test\test.exe and tell the
user the version of that file and display it somehow in the web page.
If it cant find that file it then says it cant be found.

Web pages cannot access your files. If they could, it would be a security

However, you ought to be able to do what you describe using Microsoft's
ActiveX technology. ActiveX will only run in Internet Explorer for Windows
(and Netscape 7.x for Windows). Internet Explorer's motto is "security
nightmares r us".
