How to determine version of an xla file


We are currently gathering data from function group XUSR include u201CZXUSRU01u201D, regarding frontend information. We are using function module 'GUI_GET_FILE_INFO', but have also tried method 'FILE_GET_VERSION' in class 'CL_GUI_FRONTEND_SERVICES', to get file version information from wdbwpub.exe to determine the BEx 3.5 installed version.. This is proving to be not too reliable. The version of file sapbex.xla seems to be consistent with what we expect, however I do not know how to get file version information from a non-executable. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how we can gather the BEx 3.5 version information from the front-end?

Best Regards
