VB.Net dll files not displaying the file version

I have a web site project that is not updating the file version information when I build and publish. The modified date is updating, but the other information that I have in the AssemblyInfo.vb file is not showing at all. All of the dll files in the bin folder show the version 0.0.0.0 instead of the 1.0.0.0 I have in the file.

This is causing me issues because the app_code.dll file is copied to the GAC and since the version doesn't change I have to get the web server group to manually overwrite the copy in the GAC. I only have access to the folder where my site resides and cannot make any changes on the web server.

I have seen lots of places where it says that the file version is pulled from the AssemblyInfo.vb, but in my case that does not seem to be the case.

Any ideas on how I can get the file version to populate on my dll files?

Thanks,
Jerry

Here is an example AssemblyInfo.vb -
Imports System
Imports System.Reflection
Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices

' General Information about an assembly is controlled through the following 
' set of attributes. Change these attribute values to modify the information
' associated with an assembly.

' Review the values of the assembly attributes

<Assembly: AssemblyTitle("Example")> 
<Assembly: AssemblyDescription("")> 
<Assembly: AssemblyCompany("Fabrikam")> 
<Assembly: AssemblyProduct("Example")> 
<Assembly: AssemblyCopyright("Copyright © Fabrikam 2014")> 
<Assembly: AssemblyTrademark("")> 

<Assembly: ComVisible(False)>

'The following GUID is for the ID of the typelib if this project is exposed to COM
<Assembly: Guid("00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000")> 

' Version information for an assembly consists of the following four values:
'
'      Major Version
'      Minor Version 
'      Build Number
'      Revision
'
' You can specify all the values or you can default the Build and Revision Numbers 
' by using the '*' as shown below:
' <Assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.0.*")> 

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

Open in new window

Ensure that your Assembly version and Assembly file version attributes are properly formatted.

Are you using a ClickOnce deployment?  If so make sure that your publish tab is configured properly.Capture.JPG
