Packed Version Number

Mar 16, 2015 at 9:43 PM

Is it possible to control the "dll" Version Number of the -packed.xll produced by the packing tool/build?

I was hoping to be able to number it in accordance with the csproj Assembly Information, which currently makes it into the built Addin dll. the -packed.xll seems to (always) have the version number set to in the ExcelDNA version I have.

This would save me having to track the version of the packed xll produced separately.

Hi Keith,

Easiest would be to use the verpatch tool to adjust the .xll version information. See and

Thanks govert. Any chance the feature (to automatically set the packed xll version to that of the csproj assembly) could be integrated into a future ExcelDNA revision and controlled by say an attribute in the .dna file?

Lightening fast response by the way!
