This is got to be an easy one but 'darned' if I find how it's done.

I want to display data from the Project Settings dialogue; in particular the
version number from the Owner tab.

Thanks in advance

Project Settings data are not included in the media build. You can use the
"Execute the batch or executable file" option in the Media Wizard's
Post-Build Options panel or the media property sheet's Post Build page to
run a batch or executable file that reads the desired data from the project
file (.ipr file) and writes the data to a new key in Setup.ini; this data
can then be read at run time by the script function GetProfString.
