Aaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrg

 

Apparently with the release of VS2005, Microsoft has decided that if you are not using click once, you obviously don't need to use version numbers on your app.

 

I'm trying to set up a schema of 1.2.3.4 where

1 = major

2 = minor

3 = sprint number

4 = ccnet build number

 

but no matter what I do, when I right click on MY_APP.exe, and check properties, I get "1.0.0.0" as opposed to my expected "0.5.5.298"

 

On the other hand, another one of our apps is deployed using click once.  That was easier, alter the first 3 digits in the project "publish" tab, and then add the reference to <property name="CCNetLabel"/> in or nant build for the last digit.

...

Ok, now that I'm thinking about it, the click once set up was a pain too, because MS stores the version number in 2 places, the first 3 numbers or stored in the proj file, the last number is stored in a user file buried somewhere (google applicationversion and "%2a" and you should be able to find that info)
