class Sample 
    public static void Main() 

    string fmtStd = "Standard version:\n" +
                    " = {0}.{1}.{2}.{3}";
    string fmtInt = "Interim version:\n" +
                    " = {0}.{1}.{2}.{3}/{4}";

    Version std = new Version(2, 4, 1128, 2);
    Version interim = new Version(2, 4, 1128, (100 << 16) + 2);

    Console.WriteLine(fmtStd, std.Major, std.Minor, std.Build, std.Revision);
    Console.WriteLine(fmtInt, interim.Major, interim.Minor, interim.Build, 
                              interim.MajorRevision, interim.MinorRevision);
This code example produces the following results:

Standard version: = 2.4.1128.2
Interim version: = 2.4.1128.100/2
