VSTO, OL2007, C#, VS2008.

The following code gets the version number of an Addin project for display

on a custom Help, About form.

lblVersionNo.Text =

Globals.ThisAddIn.GetType().Assembly.GetName().Version.ToString();

However, I need rather the version number of the Setup project (named

"MySetupProject") within the solution since that version number is the one

that is displayed under Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs.

Does anyone know what changes to the above code I would need to do in order

to get the setup project's value?

TIA

You really should post this sort of question in a VS group, this has nothing

to do with Outlook programming.

You usually set the setup project to have the same versioning as your addin,

so what shows up in Add/Remove, etc. does match your addin version. Then you

can do proper installation updating.
