How to set version number in dll files on web site?

When we create a web application in visual studio, we can create a web site application (New -> Web Site) or create a web project application.

We can set dll/file versions on web project application when publishing.


How do we change the version numbers for dlls of a  website application?.

You do it through just as you do with a Windows application, through the Project's properties window as illustrated in your first screenshot.

Perhaps you didn't understand the question.

In visual studio you can create a web application project or a website project.

in a WEBSITE PROJECT.  How do I change the version number of the assembly that I publish.

You cant change the assembly version.  ie  When you click project properties on a website application in vstudio you do not have that option that you would in a web application property pages.

OK, got you. I was thinking that you were working on a ASP Web Application.

I have not experience with the Web Site template, but I do not think that you can. Look at the page that compares both types of applications.

And from what I see, you are not very far in your project, so take care to read the Note at the beginning of the page.

Then go further down, to the Scenarios section, where it is explicitely said that you should use an ASP Web Application instead of a Web Site if You want control over the assembly name and version number that is generated for the site.
