I would like to compare the version of an installed plug-in (Python scripts, compiled into an RHI with the RhinoScriptCompiler) against that of an RHI that is sitting on my hard disk, but hasn’t been installed. Is this possible?
The only solution I have come up with is to use the file creation times, but checking the actual version string would be tidier, I reckon. Python’s distutils LooseVersion works nicely with the version string extracted from the plug-in’s path.
I opened the RHP (extracted from the RHI Zip) in a text editor, and found some human readable strings. However, the version (e.g. ‘1.0.5912.29706’) is not one of them.
Thank you for your thoughts.
