Having one would help us all out :) %90 if a customer has a issue it is because they are using an older version of Mach.

You would be best requesting at the Yahoo forum for one...but there is a trick that I know if you can parse a XML file that I can share:

Under:
C:\Mach3\Uninstall\uninstall.xml

Find this value:

<Name>%SourceFilename%</Name>
<Value>C:\Documents and Settings\MyComputer\Desktop\Mach3Version3.043.000.exe</Value>


If you would like I can write VB code to do this for you.

Now that's an interesting tidbit - thanks Jason.
Thanks for the offer, but I'll whip up the parsing code if I decide to use this tip.

Seems odd that this basic ability is missing from mach - I'l ping Brian to see if I can get any interest in adding it.
Sure would make writing extensions to mach feel safer - I use features that I know require a certain rev or later - I wanted to make the extensions check for an appropriate mach level before running.
