Read FileVersion of Windows EXE on Linux

This is not really an NSIS question but knowing the great minds here and given that my Windows EXE is generated by NSIS, I am hoping to find a hint or tip here (I combed the web but found no answer, yet):

I would like to be able to extract, using a bash script running on Linux, the FileVersion information embedded in my NSIS installers. The idea is that the bas script will call an external program that actually extract thatFileVersion info.

So far, I only managed to use 'strings':
strings -e l mywindowsexename.exe

Which results in two separate lines for FileVersion and its information. Thus a simple line manipulation program such as grep or sed won't suffice.

Any tip or pointer to how to accomplish this?
