/V (Version Number)

Embeds a text stringin the .obj file. Deprecated.



A string specifying the version number or copyright notice to be embedded in an .obj file.

The stringcan label an .obj file with a version number or a copyright notice. Any space or tab characters must be enclosed in double quotation marks (") if they are a part of the string. A backslash (\) must precede any double quotation marks if they are a part of the string. A space between /V and string is optional.

You can also use comment (C/C++) with the compiler comment-type argument to place the name and version number of the compiler in the .obj file.

/V is deprecated; /V was primarily used to support building virtual device drivers (VxDs), and building VxDs is no longer supported by the Visual C++ toolset. For more information, see Deprecated Compiler Options.
