You can also use "*" for any of the values to have it auto-increment with each build.

But, bigger picture, you might want to look into proper source control such as sourcesafe, subversion, or TFS. These sorts of products will make it easier for you to version your code and branch/tag versions more effectively. Which basically means that you can snapshot the code base at the start of each new development cycle.

If u are deploying ur application using 'Click Once'(It's available with VS full edition), then it'll take care of  the versioning...
