Is there build in version stuff in VS and/or .NET Framework?  I think there are Framework methods that can be called to get version info.  Where does it get this info?  web.config?

you can use
Environment.Version()

Open in new window

, to get .net version.
if u want to know service pack as well then use this:
Dim installed_versions As RegistryKey = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey("SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP")
Dim version_names As String() = installed_versions.GetSubKeyNames()
Dim Framework As Double = Convert.ToDouble(version_names(version_names.Length - 1).Remove(0, 1), CultureInfo.InvariantCulture)
Dim SP As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(installed_versions.OpenSubKey(version_names(version_names.Length - 1)).GetValue("SP", 0))

Open in new window

the assembly version:
Dim assembly As Assembly = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly()
Dim fvi As FileVersionInfo = FileVersionInfo.GetVersionInfo(assembly.Location)
Dim version As String = fvi.FileVersion

You can easily get to this information (as opposed to opening up the file directly) by going to your project's properties, and then selecting the "Application" tab, and then clicking the "Assembly Information..." button.

ok.   I have this in assembly.vb.

<Assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.0.0.0")>
<Assembly: AssemblyFileVersion("1.0.0.0")>


However, when I run this code, I get a version of 0.0.0.0.    See image.  My project is a WEB site.  Does this matter?  


       Dim assembly As Reflection.Assembly = Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly()
        Dim fvi As FileVersionInfo = FileVersionInfo.GetVersionInfo(assembly.Location)
        Dim version As String = fvi.FileVersion

kaufmed - This is a WEB site project.  I do not see an applications tab under properties.   For a DLL project or console app, I do see the application tab.

you can us the core dll in your web site project and use its assembly version as a reference to your web site version.
so u update the AseemblyInfo if this dll, and to get the version from code you use thisL
typeof(TheDllClass).Assembly.GetName().Version.ToString()

Try reviewing and applying the information found here:

http://odetocode.com/blogs/scott/archive/2006/01/24/assemblyversion-and-web-projects.aspx

I don't work with web sites; most of my work is with web applications, to which my previous comment applies.

Websites don't normally  have .dll's ergo no versioning..

I take it you were speaking in the general sense of the term "website." A .NET website project can be pre-compiled, which would yield a DLL. Withstanding, what is version other than applying an incremental number to the new incarnation of a piece of code. There is nothing stopping you from versioning an HTML file, should you so desire.

Yes I was referring to in general. Precompiling a website for deployment is another issue entirely.
