private void GetIsPatched()
{
    // Get the file version for the notepad.
    FileVersionInfo myFileVersionInfo =
        FileVersionInfo.GetVersionInfo(Environment.SystemDirectory + "\\Notepad.exe");

    // Print whether the file has a patch installed.
    textBox1.Text = "File has patch installed: " + myFileVersionInfo.IsPatched;
}
