Easiest way is to open the applications (FM, ID, etc.) and do a Help > About action. That will give you the point version of each application.

As far as I understand the question, it's more about how to see the version of the software that was used to create a specific file. That is, you get an FM file from a colleague / partner / client and want to see quickly which version of FM (or the other tools mentioned) he was using to create the file. Without opening the file in plain text editor to look it up in the file header or to open the file in FrameMaker itself.

I'm not aware of any possibility to do this. FM writes an xmpmeta with this information into the FM file itself (e.g. <xmp:CreatorTool>FrameMaker 10.0</xmp:CreatorTool>, but Windows does not read this.

That is, one possibility would be to use Adobe Bridge. Just open Bridge, browse to the file in question and select it. On the right in the file properties it tells you the version name.

However, when doing so, please be aware that FM11, 12, and 2015 (until Update 2) have a bug: The XMP Metadata still stay "FrameMaker 10.0". This will be fixed in a future patch as far as I know, as we are already aware of it.

Bridge is included in the CC Suite.
