Returns the LabVIEW file format version of the VI. The file format version of the VI might be different from the version of LabVIEW in which the VI was last saved. For example, if you use LabVIEW 9.0.1 to save a VI, the VI has a file format version of 9.0.

To obtain the version of LabVIEW in which the VI was last saved, use the Get VI:Editor Version method.

LabVIEW does not open the VI when retrieving the version information. If you specify a path to a file that is not a VI, LabVIEW returns error 6559.
