true if the file is patched; otherwise, false.

The following example calls GetVersionInfo to get the FileVersionInfo for the Notepad. Then it displays the state of the Boolean IsPatched in a text box. This code assumes textBox1 has been instantiated.

    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 = String::Concat( "File has patch installed: ", myFileVersionInfo->IsPatched );
