how to find the version information(including update name) of ExpeditionPCB from automation?
I only find the major version, such as 2007.11.0, 2007.12.0. But I also want to get more, which looks like update 5, update 14.
PCB Automation does not have access to update release(patch) information.
How about reading the information from files in "<EE_Install_Path>\InstallVersions" folder? (for instance, the folder would be in C:\MentorGraphics\7.9.5EE\installversions if your SDD_HOME env.var. is set to C:\MentorGraphics\7.9.5EE\SDD_HOME)
Thanks, Nick. You are right.
additional method (from Emily Yuan) :
For a particular design, you can parse through the iCDB logfiles at …\database\cdbsvr\log\*\*.txt .
