How to check if there is a new MAXtoA version from maxscript?

I would like to display a message when my script runs if there is a new MAXtoA version available. In the Arnold Rendrer tab of Render Setup I see the Currently installed version and a link for the new version but I have no idea how to get that information in maxscript. I looked at renderers.current since it has most of the options in that window but there is mention of MAXtoA version. Where can I get the version number? Is there a way to check if a new one is available automatically?

getFileVersion @"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\MAXtoA\MAXtoA.dlr"

Perfect! Thank you @Mike Samoylov.

I ended up using: getFileVersion (pathConfig.appendPath (getDir #maxroot) "Plugins/MAXtoA/MAXtoA.dlr") because I didn't have that specific path.
