  • User-1087475003 posted

    Hi all,

     For my asp.net project I added a Web Deployment project and all work just perfectly expect that i can't increment build version like I would.

    In the "Output Assemblies" section I selected "Merge All output to a single assembly" and the new .dll is welll created . If I specify an assembly version number like, my dll will have these numbers. But what I would like right now is a way to manage this assembly numbers like with an incremental way or with the day of build.

    To version a web deployment project, simply place the following code in the web.config file of the web project:

          <compiler language="c#;cs;csharp" extension=".cs"
            type="Microsoft.CSharp.CSharpCodeProvider, System,
          Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral,
          PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" warningLevel="0"
            compilerOptions="[PATH]\AssemblyInfo.cs" />

     Then, replace [PATH] with the location of your AssemblyInfo file. Ensure the warningLevel is only set to 0, if you set it any higher, you will get a Non CLS-Compliant error. Perhaps someone from microsoft can inform me if it is possible to alter the default naming schemes of the internal '__ASP' naming schema to create the component to be CLS-Compliant.

    I tried using your solution. first of all it gave me errors for all the lines in assemblyinfo.cs file. When I commented those, I get version number as when I try to print


    Let me know how I can use this.
