Getting this website dll version

Hi All!

Using 1.1 i did:
                        Version ver = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Version;
                        lbVersion.Text = ver.Major + "." + ver.Minor + "." + ver.Build;

but in 2.0 it results in "0.0.0"

one thing that i could note is the name of the dll. this is a random name. not the name that i normally use.

Any ideas?

Nop. It looks like a solution but in a normal web project into vs2005 there is a assemblyinfo.cs file inside the Properties folder. If you click in the project property pages , you can manipulate the version number.

As i convert the system from vs2003 to vs2005, the assemblyinfo.cs is moved to App_Code folder and i could not put it into the compilerOptions. The compiler did not find it.

I try to put the assemblyinfo.cs into many places, but i got the "not found" in the compilation.

To be used as solution for this question.

This problem was solved with the new visual studio template, the web application project. With this template, the assemblyinfo works like 1.1.
