Hi everyone! I am wanting to compare versions of files (one locally stored on computer and one stored on website) for a bigger project that I'm involved in. Is it possible to obtain the FileVersion information of a file stored on the web?

What kind of file? For most files, there is no a concept of file version. It does not exist as the universal attribute in most OS as well.

In particular, the SQL Server CE files (.sdf) files. In particular, when we deploy new versions, we want to update the version from 1.0 to 2.0, etc. I really want to avoid httpwebrequest and httpwebresponse if at all possible. Those 2 still confuse me.

Depends on how it exists. If you're storing it on the web, then you can create a webservice to do this. If it's exposed via FTP, I think you can get it via FTP. Otherwise, I think you need to download it.
