Getting plugin version info automatically in FM12

Is there a way in FM12 to grab the version number of a plugin during the insertion process? The Get ( InstalledFMPlugins ) function applies to plugins after they have been installed. I'm looking to automate the process of inserting a plugin file into a container field so that the plugin name and version get automatically set into their corresponding fields. The name is easy to get after the fact by using GetAsText ( "ContainerFieldName" ). I think I need a way to grab the file info while it's being selected, which means using something other than InsertFile, which is a once and done function. I've seen mention of using AppleScript. Is there a way to use that to choose the file, grab the version number (or other file info) and continue on from there in FM?
