How Can I Determine Which Version of Word is Installed on a Computer? – Hey, Scripting Guy! Blog – Site Home – TechNet Blogs

Late binding sometimes is your friend:

Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
Wscript.Echo "Version: " & objWord.Version
Wscript.Echo "Build: " & objWord.Build

The accompanying Delphi code:


procedure TTestVersionAgnosticWordMainForm.GetWordApplicationInfoButtonClick(Sender: TObject);
  WordApplication: OleVariant;
  Version: OleVariant;
  Build: OleVariant;
  WordApplication := CreateOleObject('Word.Application');
      Version := WordApplication.Version;
      Build := WordApplication.Build;
    WordApplication := Unassigned; // release it
