Read the Version Automatically

For Enscape Versions Prior to 4.0

If you want to somehow parse the installed Enscape version, this is how to do it. We store a text file, version.txt. It contains the current installed version information. You can use it for internal scripts that determine the installed version on computers in your company network.

If Enscape is installed for all users of a machine, this .txt file will be located at:

C:\Program Files\Enscape\Renderer\Bin64\version.txt

This path can also be changed to reflect the installation path that was set when Enscape had been initially installed.

Furthermore, if Enscape is installed for the current user only, then that .txt file would be found at, for example:


Again, this path could appear different depending on where the software was installed during the installation.

As an example, this is the type of text contained you will find contained within the version.txt file:

Note: If an update is available, the Enscape user will be notified with a popup during the Revit start. However, this notification can also be disabled.
