More information:
Shell DLLs include Shell (Shell32.dll), Common Controls (comctl32.dll), Shell Light-Weight API (shlwapi.dll). This code shows you how to obtain the version information using the exported function DllGetVersion. If the DLL does not export this function (Pre-IE4), the code retrieves the version information using the conventional methods.

Instructions: Click the link below to download the code. Select 'Save' from the IE popup dialog. Once downloaded, open the .zip file from your local drive using WinZip or a comparable program to view the contents.
