Download verinfo12.zip, unzip the archive, and copy VerInfo.exe to a folder in your path.

When I typed verinfo %systemroot%\notepad.exe on my Windows XP desktop, I received:

   The VerInfo program is a small utility which allows you to obtain
 the version information resources from a given file. Version
 information resources can be found in almost every PE structured
 Win32 file (.exe,.dll,.vxd,.drv,...) and they contain data about the
 purpose of the file, the author of the file, etc..  These kind of
 information are very useful in that case when you wish to know what
 a file is used for, who wrote it, when, etc.

 Usage :

   verinfo filename.ext

   (e.g. verinfo hpcdv.dll)


 \[ In that rarely case when you see blank spaces after every
   property of a file (e.g. File Name, File Description, etc.),
   the file is built with a linker that VerInfo doesn't understand;
   then you might try to use another program to access the Version
   Information record. \]
