Application.Productname returns empty string

I set the assembly attribute <Assembly: AssemblyProduct("Verzorgingsplaatsen")>

But Application.Productname remains empty. What's wrong?

    Instead of looking in the AssemblyInfo.vb file, click on the project in the server explorer. Then look at the 'Properties' window. One of the property items should be 'Productname'. Set it there. Cheers.

    There is no such property on the properties window.
    The sample code below suggests there is a Productname property to the Me keyword. But I don't see it.


    ' Visual Basic
    Imports System
    Imports System.Windows.Forms
    Imports System.Reflection

    ' Set the assembly attributes.
    <Assembly: AssemblyCompany("Microsoft")>
    <Assembly: AssemblyProduct("MyApplication")>
    <Assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.0.1")>
    Public Class AboutDialogBox
       Inherits Form
       Public Sub New()
          ' Display the assembly information in a Label.
          Dim label1 As New Label()
          label1.Text = _
            Me.CompanyName + " " + _
            Me.ProductName + " Version: " + _
          label1.AutoSize = True
       End Sub
    End Class
