I am creating an About box for one of my apps that should reflect the version number of the app as specified in the AssemblyVersionAttribute in AssemblyInfo.cpp, preferably without requiring me to have to update the number in two distinct locations in parallel. The Application::ProductVersion propperty looked promising for that purpose, as I interpret the MSDN docs, but it seems to always return "22.214.171.124", regardless of what I set up in AssemblyInfo.cpp. Could there be anything typical that I might be doing wrong and/or any other way to access this information?
In case that matters: I have only tried this with the debug build so far.
BTW: What means "using the default values" for the build and revision numbers as it has been preset by the IDE by setting AssemblyVersionAttribute to "1.0.*"?
I also would like to access what I have set up for AssemblyCopyrightAttribute in AssemblyInfo.cpp, but I haven't seen any (possible) way to do that at all.
