#46: How can I read a date/time of file's creation?

If you want to receive a datetime of the specified file, then you must to call a FileAge function and convert the returned value using the FileDateToDateTime function into a TDateTime value:

function GetFileDateTime(FileName: string): TDateTime;
var intFileAge: LongInt;
begin
  intFileAge := FileAge(FileName);
  if intFileAge = -1 then
    Result := 0
  else
    Result := FileDateToDateTime(intFileAge)
end;
