ScriptEngineBuildVersion Property

Returns an integer containing the build version number of the runtime currently in use.

ReadOnly Public Property ScriptEngineBuildVersion As Integer


The returned value corresponds directly to the version information contained in the DLL for the current runtime.

You can use ScriptEngineBuildVersion when your application is running as a standalone program, in a script, or in a host application.


The following example uses the ScriptEngineBuildVersion property and related properties to return a string describing the current run-time information:

Function GetRuntimeInfo() As String
   Dim Runtime As String = ""
   Runtime = ScriptEngine & " Version "
   Runtime = Runtime & CStr(ScriptEngineMajorVersion) & "."
   Runtime = Runtime & CStr(ScriptEngineMinorVersion) & "."
   Runtime = Runtime & CStr(ScriptEngineBuildVersion)
   Return Runtime   ' Return the current run-time information.
End Function

Smart Device Developer Notes

This property is not supported.


Namespace: Microsoft.VisualBasic

Module: Globals

Assembly: Microsoft Visual Basic .NET Runtime (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)

Because ScriptEngineBuildVersion is a member of a module, rather than of a class, you do not need to create an object on which to access ScriptEngineBuildVersion.
