While I have not done it with Premiere Pro files, I have done it with After Effects projects. I don't know whether you're referring to the output from the project, or the actual project itself.

In Adobe Bridge, under File Info, there is an Advanced tab way over on the right end (you can move it if you want) which shows which version and the specific project the output file (.mov, etc.) came from.

I wrote a blog post on this a couple of years ago:

It's specific to After Effects, but since PPro is an Adobe product, I would assume that the file metadata would be available in the same way.

Thanks Joseph for your response.
I refer to the project file itself.
The reason is that with a new major version each year where current version cannot always open old project files properly, it'd be helpful to know with what version the file was saved.

I think you'll also be able to see the version information in the project file metadata in the same way I talked about in the last post, using Bridge.

Do you own any Adobe software? If you do, you should have Bridge.

Since version CS4.0, Premiere Pro has included Adobe Bridge. I guess you must have a very old version of PPRo:

OK, my bad. I've found my Bridge, but couldn't find any info related to the Premiere Pro version which saved it.

Well I've found the answer elsewhere:
For text project files: check the version with a text editor. CS6 is version 25.
For binary project files: copy the project file to a file with extension zip, decompress with 7-zip to a text file and proceed as before.
