class Example
   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)

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

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

      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(fmtStd, std.Major, std.Minor, std.Build, std.Revision) + "\n";
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(fmtInt, interim.Major, interim.Minor, 
                                        interim.Build, interim.Revision) + "\n";
This code example produces the following results:

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