 File version and/or revision

Hello all, I am in the midst of learning to properly program using VB
(VB5,6 is what im using) and have a couple of questions.

1. How would one, after verifying that a file exist; peek the
information of that file in order to be sure it's the right version or
revision of the file?

Example: I need to find myfile.dll to on the pc.  In addition myfile.dll
must be 786kb, file version 1.x, with an Original Filename myfile.dll

2. Providing that I can extract this info from the neccessary files, is
it then possible to match this information with a table of set

Example :

File Info                       Access or VB ref table

File name: myfile.dll           Original Filename= myfile.dll
Version: 1.2                    File Version = 1.x
File size: 768,121              File Siz = 768,121

Assuming I assigned File Version= 1.x where x = a variable this file
would match the criteria of the ref table.  Is something like this
possible (of course it is :-) ) and what is the best way to go about
doing this?

Thanks in advance as any and all help is apprectiated

PS Would this be easier to do with VBA?
