Hi,

I am working on a website that uses...

Private strVersion As String = _
     "VERSION " & System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly.GetName.Version.Major & _
     "." & System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly.GetName.Version.Minor & _
     "." & System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly.GetName.Version.Build & _
     "." & System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly.GetName.Version.Revision

to access the version info.

I need to do a release and cannot fathom how to update the version. I am aware that the version info is kept in the assembly but how do you access the assembly from visual studio?

The version is usually stored in the AssemblyInfo.vb file, in the web project.

If there isn't one, you can add one.  If there is one, and you add another, then you will get an error that there are duplicates.
