This is add-in. and does not have any code.

I need code that generates list of dll files with their version number.

Thanks

try below console app. which give the ref list for the current assembly.

public void GetRefAsm()
{
        Int32 indent = 0;
        // Display information about the EXE assembly.
        Assembly a = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
        Display(indent, "Assembly identity={0}", a.FullName);
        Display(indent+1, "Codebase={0}", a.CodeBase);

        // Display the set of assemblies our assemblies reference.

        Display(indent, "Referenced assemblies:");
        foreach (AssemblyName an in a.GetReferencedAssemblies() )
        {
             Display(indent + 1, "Name={0}, Version={1}, Culture={2}, PublicKey token={3}", an.Name, an.Version, an.CultureInfo.Name, (BitConverter.ToString (an.GetPublicKeyToken())));
        }
        Display(indent, "");
}

// Display a formatted string indented by the specified amount.
    public void Display(Int32 indent, string format, params object[] param)
    {
        Console.Write(new string(' ', indent*2));
        Console.WriteLine(format, param);
    }
