VB.NET, project build date and version
Posted on 2004-08-17
I wrote a project in VS 2k2 and we have since upgraded to 2k3. I opened the project in 2k3, converted it to 2k3, and have been working on it. One theing that has never worked was the versioning of the software.
How do I get the version to change each time I build (and how do I build it the right waty to make it keep doing that).
As a fix, we added in a way to view the date of the build...but so far it is just printing out a static date that I have to hard code in. How would I go about creating a few lines of code to get the build date of the project upon execution for display? How would I do this with the version as well?
Also, in my setup project, I have detect newer instal to true and remove previous version true, but it does not do either of these. How do I get this to work?
