Determine Engine Version Used To Build Standalone?

After seeing your question, I had a quick look at an LiveCode standalone and found these in plain text:

                        *                        Revolution 4.6                            *

Copy of  5.5.1-rc-4 

MCdebugresult    REVO2700   REVO5500

The copyright notice would be easiest to find and interpret but it doesn't seem that it was kept up-to-date. 

The "Copy of 5.5.1.-rc-4" was in the middle of some other constants and might not be easy to find.

The MCdebugresult string has not "viewable" characters between the 3 items printed. 

I doubt that this will be of much help but I thought I might as well let you know what I found.
