Need help converting c++ CString.Format to C#

Hello everyone,

I need help converting the following C++ code to C#:

CString csVer;
DWORD nVer=GetSdkVersion();
DWORD nVersion=nVer&0x0000ffff;
DWORD nBuild=(nVer>>16)&0x0000ffff;
csVer.Format("My.dll ver is %04x build is %04x",nVersion,nBuild);

Open in new window

string csVer;
UInt32 nVer = GetSdkVersion();
UInt32 nVersion = nnVer & 0x0000ffff;
UInt32 nBuild = (nVer>>16) & 0x0000ffff;
csVer = string.Format("My.dll ver is {0:X4} build is {1:X4}", nVersion, nBuild);

that is, asumming you have correctly marshalled the GetSdkVersion() function.

That worked. Thanks.

The strange thing is this though. The DLL version in windows states 4.7.0.0, but the C++, and the C# code you just provided, both return this as my SDK version:  "My.dll ver is 0407 build is 0612"

Any insight as to why?  

The C++ code is from the DLL manufacturer so I'm pretty sure the code to get the version is correct. Plus the return is the same for the C++ code and the C# code, so I know I marshalled the GetSDKVersion() method correctly.

so should I display the 0407 as "SDK Version 4.7"  ?

Can I get the other 4.7.0.0 out of the string above so that I can display it as 4.7.0.0?

Cause some of the other DLL's are 4.6.0.1, and I'd love to show that.

Really I don't know because version numbering style can vary depending on provider, and even on version.
