Using VS2010 w Win 7.

Tried it on several different types of projects and a couple of different machines.

It worked once on one project on one machine...

Otherwise, epic fail despite all the trappings of a great idea....

Its a good start. It has lots of bugs in it still for Visual Studio 2010...

BUG with nested solution folders

Not working in Visual Studio 2010 SP1

just to name the big 2 issues I'm currently seeing

And it looks like the last update for this project was on Aug 19th.

Cool tool: I use the components versioning extensively for the first time. Microsoft has forgotten to give us a versioning in VS2010, right? Any way, now we can work with a very good tool, thanks.

    • Are there any plans to update this tool for VS2013 or 2015?
      I loved using this utility and ever since my IDE was upgraded this is the one tool i miss the most

    • Can this work with regular C++ (unmanaged) projects too ... would be great if it did.
    •  1 on the question above.  If it can be set to update the version info in the resource files for unmanaged projects it would be great.
    • no, it doesnt work with C/C  . But there are several other addins which DO work with C/C   - just search for them in the online-gallery
    • “Several other addins”? I have not been able to find any. The closest I could find was Version Number Generator by Marek Sienczak which does not work (VS says it didn’t work and prompts to remove it).
      Maybe it would be more helpful to list at least one or two actual, specific examples.
  • Does this work with MS Build

    • If you're using TFS to do automated builds, will this do anything on the build server or is it really just for individual use?
  • Web Applications

    • Too bad it does not help with versioning web applications
