Greetings,

I am new to the boards. I have looked through 36 pages of posts and was not able to find an answer to the task i need to preform. I have done extensive google searches, but all answers lead back to compatibility issue directly in vb.net and i need setting information for a single file.

File.attributes does not contain the information i need.

I have a file C:\SomeFile.exe.
I right click on it and go to properties, then the compatibility tab.

I need to retrieve what the setting is under compatibility mode using programmatic methods including if the value is null using VB.NET.

Thank you for any responses

Okay, From further testing:

If i read the hkey_current_user\software\microsoft\windows nt\currentversion\appcomptflags\layers the information can be found there.

Is there a way to get this information without reading from the registry? such as a file attribute method that i am missing.
