The WIA_DIP_DRIVER_VERSION property contains the current DLL version of a WIA minidriver. The WIA service creates and maintains this property.

Property Type: VT_BSTR

Valid Values: WIA_PROP_NONE

Access Rights: Read-only


If the WIA minidriver does not supply a version resource, the WIA service supplies the value "" as a default. An application reads WIA_DIP_DRIVER_VERSION to determine the version of the WIA minidriver DLL.

Note   Beginning with Windows Vista, the wildcard IP address is not available.

Also beginning with Windows Vista, if the IPAutoconfigurationEnabled registry key is set to a value of 0, automatic IP address assignment is disabled, and no IP address is assigned. In this case, the ipconfig command line tool will not display an IP address. If the key is set to a nonzero value, an IP address is automatically assigned. This key can be located at the following paths in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Current Control Set\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\IPAutoconfigurationEnabled

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Current Control Set\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\GUID\IPAutoconfigurationEnabled




Available in Microsoft Windows XP and later operating systems.
