    Version Number


    Hi guys,

    I've created an ActiveX DLL with a version number of 6.1.0 according to the
    Project Properties dialog. On Windows NT 4.0, the file properties dialog
    for the compiled DLL says that version is really 6.01. But on Windows ME,
    the file properties dialog for the compiled DLL says 6.1.0.0. That's three
    different numbers! When I get a bug report, I need to know what version of
    my component they're using. What is going on here?

    Lisa,
    Yes, they are three different numbers, but really the only difference
    is the format of that "number"

    (in VB Major = 6, Minor = 1, Revision = 0, in NT the format is Major.Minor.Revision
    as #.0#(with a possible leading 0) - if revision is 0, it isn't shown, in
    Windows ME it would appear the the format is Major.Minor.Revision.SubRevision
    as #.#.#.# (with NO leading 0s) - my guess is that what I called SubRevision
    is a new level which will be introduced soon???? only a guess on that last
    part) Isn't it wonderful when the left hand doesn't know what the right hand
    is doing? You would think the Microsoft, as the developers of VB, Windows
    NT AND Windows ME would be consistant. Just remember that "Consistency is
    the HobGobblin of Feeble Minds" LOL

    Sorry but that is the best that I can do to possibly explain the three "numbers".
