Assembly Version problems

Guest

Hi,

I have built a Windows Forms app (.NET Framework 1.1, VB.NET).

I thought that if I left the Assembly version in AssemblyInfo.vb as the
default (1.1.*) then the Build number would change every day (since Jan 1
2000), and the Revision number would change every second (since midnight)

But when I build my app several times a day, the Revision number doesnn't
change, and the Build number is not even changing from day to day.

I do this in my splash form to check:

Dim sMsgVersion As String = "Build: " + New Version("1.1." &
System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Version.Build.ToString
& "." &
System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Version.Revision.ToString).ToString

Debug.WriteLine("Version: " & sMsgVersion)

but the result is always the same:
Version: Build: 1.1.2595.31500

amd the last two (Build and revision) are staying the same!

what am I doing wrong please?

Also, how can I get it so the Build number is always the number of days
since 20th Jan 2007 (when I made first build of the project) ?

thanks

IIRC it's a "feature" of VB.NET. I think the revision number is only
updated when the dev environment is stared.

If you don't like the default bahavior you ahve to implement your own
versioning scheme and update the AssemblyVersionAttribute before
building.

thanks, that's the answer... close and re-open VS.NET for a new revision and
build.

cheers
