Hi,

I am using VS 2003 to write a C# smart device application.  What do I have to do so that when I check the properties of the exe generated, I can see a version number other than 0.0.0.0?  Also, how can I obtain the version at runtime?

Thank you,
Joe

look at the assemblyInfo.cs (in the solution explorer) file of your project, you'll see all the information you need there, and it explains how to activate it

Try this,

System.Version ver = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Version;
int b = ver.Build;      // 1740
int m = ver.Major;      // 1
int n = ver.Minor;      // 0
int r = ver.Revision;      // 21027
string verNum = ver.ToString();      // 1.0.1740.21027

Hi,

I can see the AssemblyInfo.cs in a normal desktop application but not on my smart device application (.netcf).  Any ideas on how to do it there?

Thanks,
Joe

Hi,

Thanks for your help.  I ended up just copying an AssemblyInfo.cs from another project to the .netcf one and added it.  Then I can set the version info there.
