Returns an Integer containing the major version number of the runtime currently in use.
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualBasic (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)
The returned value corresponds directly to the version information contained in the DLL for the current runtime.
You can use ScriptEngineMajorVersion when your application is running as a standalone program, in a script, or in a host application.
The following example uses the ScriptEngineMajorVersion 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
