Converting from VB6 to VB.NET and new at it so any help would be great.  I have posted the code below from the .NET and the two errors.  I am trying to get the Name, copy and version info but not much luck.  Please Help.

Code
Public Sub TRACE(ByVal pstrLogData As String)
        Dim strAppVer, strLogData1 As String
        Dim App As New ApplicationId
        Const LOGLOC = "\Program Files\Rite Aid\Vru\Logs\HolidayHours.Log"

        Try
            strAppVer = App.Name & "." & App.Copy & App.Version
            'Add the string to the list with the time.
            strLogData1 = "-" & pstrLogData
            usrctlLogger.LogToFile(LOGLOC, strAppVer, strLogData1)

        Catch ex As Exception
            End
        End Try
    End Sub

Error Mssg 1
Argument not specified for parameter 'version' of 'Public Sub New(publicKeyToken() As Byte, name As String, version As System.Version, processorArchitecture As String, culture As String)'.

Error Mssg 2
Operator '&' is not defined for types 'String' and 'System.ApplicationId'.

There's a couple of different ways of getting at it - depending on what you're after...

strAppVer=my.Application.Info.Version.ToString
strAppVer=my.Application.Deployment.CurrentVersion.ToString
strAppVer=System.Diagnostics.FileVersionInfo.GetVersionInfo(system.Reflection.Assembly.GetEntryAssembly.Location).FileVersion

strAppName=my.Application.Info.AssemblyName

I really need to know what the error mssg is telling me and how to fix it.

Error Mssg 1
Argument not specified for parameter 'version' of 'Public Sub New(publicKeyToken() As Byte, name As String, version As System.Version, processorArchitecture As String, culture As String)'.

I get five error like the one above just replace 'version' with
'culture'
'name'
'publickeytoken'
and 'processorarchiteture'

Figured it out.  Needed to drop the new in the dim clause
