Updating the assembly version date time
Assembly, _ Optional By Val force File Date As Boolean = False) As Date Time Dim v As System. Build Be careful when relying on version to predict build date in Visual Studio . For some reason, the IDE does not update the build number every time you build a solution.Visual Studio only increments the build and revision number when the solution is closed and reopened.Lately I got some time to play a bit more with the new build system which was released with TFS 2015 and which is also available for Visual Studio Online.The new build system was in the beginning announced as build v Next, but now with the release of TFS 2015, it’s safe to call it Team Foundation Build 2015 (TFBuild 2015) while the “old” build system can be referred to as the xaml (workflow) build system.Microsoft is conducting an online survey to understand your opinion of the Msdn Web site.If you choose to participate, the online survey will be presented to you when you leave the Msdn Web site. Along the way I developed a number of generic activities which I could reuse for other assignments and I really knew my way around in the build workflow.
NET application without Visual Basic 6.0's version information and application object.I wouldn't expect to be able to use these versions with any reliability. It's important that others looking for the same information get accurate info.It is probably better to base your version off of a label in a source control system or something like that. Quick hacks that are questionably sound shouldn't be promoted. Perhaps I'm just looking for a little bit of extra info.But like I experienced, once you got there, you were able to integrate very powerful customizations into the build process.Anyway, the “old” build system won’t disappear and you can still rely on this functionality for quite some time in the future, but I recommend to have a good look at the new build system and use it for your new/future build definitions.
