Change Powershell Script to VB Script

Hello, I am completely new to VB scripting.  I have a powershell script that needs to work in VB.  Here is the powershell version:

 

$version = Get-FileVersionInfo C:\ProgramData\folder*\filename.exe
if ($version.FileVersion -like '10.5.8*')
    {return $version.FileVersion}
    else
    {}

Summary of script: There is an executable (filename.exe) that lives in c:\ProgramData\foldername.  The full path to the .exe is different on every installation, so it could be in c:\programdata\foldername1234\filename.exe, or c:\programdata\foldername2345\filename.exe, etc.

I need to check the file version of the .exe, see if its like a certain version, if so, return the version number, if not, return null.

Any help would be FANTASTIC!!!
