Property Value

Type: System.Int32
Returns an Integer containing the build version number of the runtime currently in use.

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 = ScriptEngine & " Version "
    runtime &= CStr(ScriptEngineMajorVersion) & "."
    runtime &= CStr(ScriptEngineMinorVersion) & "."
    runtime &= CStr(ScriptEngineBuildVersion)
    ' Return the current runtime information.
    Return runtime
End Function
