    What software do you use...

    If you want to find out what language has been used to write a software (i.e. VBA, C++ etc.)

    I am sure I have read something about that on some forum but I can't find it anymore and I have Googled it but with no luck.

    Thanks

    Most compilers leave a string in the executable that clearly states what language it was written in.

    Thanks Orson Welles, but I am not sure that you reply to the question. What I am after is a software that tells which software and which version has been used to write it.
    Thanks

    The simple solution is to copy the file as .txt and open it in wordpad/notepad. The header should contain the information as suggested.

    If the file has been packed or encrypted you may not be able to read this "in plain" so use this:

    As also suggested

    Thanks Nihil and Orson Welles that was exactly what I was looking for. Sorry Orson Welles but the first link that you gave me was not relevant to my question, did not mean to upset you.

    Regards
