In the Assembly Information, you can set the assembly version and the
file version. What is the difference between the two? The
documentation is not exactly helpful in this area.
I had the assembly version set to a unique number, and just left the
file version as 0.0.0.0. My program crashed on another computer, and
the windows error report stated: "AppVer: 0.0.0.0", so I am thinking
maybe the file version is more important (unless this was an older
version of my program that had BOTH assembly and file version set to
When you right-click properties of a file, it shows the File version
at the top, and both assembly and file versions inthe list box at the
bottom, with assembly listed first.
It is totally unclear to me what either is for, which is more
important. For now, I'll just set them to both be the same.
