Yes, answering this question certainly requires detailed knowledge of
Win32. Unfortunately/However/Factually this is really what the OP needs
to do now: go and understand Win32. Apparently, doesn't/didn't know
how Windows stores the version information. What is worse is that it
did not occur to him that his code (and the Python implementation behind
it, and the Microsoft API behind that) are all correct, and that the
problem really is in the file.
