FILEINFO_GET_DOCUMENTINFO

Please see the "options for commands" section of this manual for general information about the use of macros for configuration.

Valid values are "Y" and "N". By default this macro has a value of "Y" (unless the operating system is WIN95-ME which probably won't work).

You can configure what information is attached to the HTML report by extension (for example the author or comments for a word document).

See "FILEINFO.MMH" for other related configuration macros. By default all available (non-blank) properties are displayed when an MSI is built in development mode otherwise only non-blank selected properties as configured by you are displayed.

The "Display a file's Properties" feature allows you to see the properties for a particular file. You should also have a look at the "FILEINFO_GET_STRFILEINFO" macro.

There will be some typically minor performance impact when properties are displayed.

Example

The document information is shown (in a box) in the image below:

HANG

I have heard of one instance where this program has hung under WinXP with an older version of "Folder Size for Windows" loaded (removing and loading latest fixed the issue).

I have added a timeout to the first invokation of this process and if it hangs will recover and generate a warning. The generated documentation won't include any file document properties but will otherwise be unaffected. It is assumed that if the first invokation doesn't hang subsequent ones won't either (this means there will be no performance impact).
