Is There A Way To Tell What Version Of Solidworks A File Was Created With?

Recommended Posts

I currently work with SW2010, 2011, and 2012 frequently. Currently, I try to open a file first with 2010, then 2011, then 2012, to see the earliest version I can open it with, that way when I send it back to a client I'm sure they're still able to use it.

 

However,.... this is annoying. How does one tell what version it will open with, without trying to open it with different versions?

I'd thought if you tried opening the file in Notepad or Wordpad, you'd be able to search for something like "2010" and "2011" and so on. But this does not appear to work. The file is barely even text readable, that's really not cool!
