Steffen,

does ConvertCP have a built-in feature which allows to know which version it is?
Can't find anything of the kind in the tool's syntax, but maybe there's an easy workaround?
The "ConvertCP.exe" file which I occasionally use, could be any version...
It might be easier to check the version of my copy than to download the most recent online version to make sure that I accidentally didn't forget to fetch your latest release!

Either run CONVERTCP /? and find it in the first line of the help message, or look it up in the Details list of the file properties.

Waw, hard to believe I missed that! :oops:
The 1st line in my DOS box is always "Usage" (which is the 3rd output line for /?), but still...

Thx,

BG
