The following example uses the ScriptEngine property and related properties to return a string describing the current run-time information:
Function getRuntimeInfo() As String Dim runtime As String = ScriptEngine & " Version " runtime &= CStr(ScriptEngineMajorVersion) & "." runtime &= CStr(ScriptEngineMinorVersion) & "." runtime &= CStr(ScriptEngineBuildVersion) ' Return the current runtime information. Return runtime End Function
