Hi all, 
I wrote a vi a couple of year ago (call it file.vi), and created an executable out of it using the Application Builder (call it newfile.exe). I know I renamed the file
when I created the executable and now I cannot remember what I called the source file (I have hundreds in my PC, and cannot go through them one by one).
Is there anyway I can get the name of the original file from the executable? Notice that I am not asking to recreate the source file from the executable, which I understand is not possible.

Dennis, 
I must come clean and admit that I don't really know what source control is. Is it a back up of source codes in one place like a server? I am not a programmer but use some LabVIEW to 
automate a few simple tasks (mostly related to test data). I work solo in this area and there's not a group of people working on different pieces of the same project. 
I can Google and learn what source control is. I am assuming that the concept itself is not specific to LabVIEW, unless LabVIEW has build-in funtionality for source control
It is more like a database of files.  It keeps versions on each file so that you can revert back to a previous version if needed.  If working in a team environment, it helps to merge code and keep everybody up to date with everybody else.  But the versioning is the most important part.  I then recommend keeping the repository on a server that is regularly backed up.
For a simple SCC software, take a look at Tortoise SVN.
