Property Value

Information about a private version of the file or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the file did not contain version information.

This information is present when IsPrivateBuild is true.

The following example calls GetVersionInfo to get the FileVersionInfo for the Notepad. Then it prints the private build information in a text box. This code assumes textBox1 has been instantiated.

private void GetPrivateBuild() {
    // Get the file version for the notepad.
    FileVersionInfo myFileVersionInfo = FileVersionInfo.GetVersionInfo("%systemroot%\\Notepad.exe");
 
    // Print the private build number.
    textBox1.Text = "Private build number: " + myFileVersionInfo.PrivateBuild;
 }
    

private void GetPrivateBuild()
{
    // Get the file version for the notepad.
    FileVersionInfo myFileVersionInfo = 
        FileVersionInfo.GetVersionInfo("%systemroot%\\Notepad.exe");

    // Print the private build number.
    textBox1.set_Text("Private build number: " 
        + myFileVersionInfo.get_PrivateBuild());
} //GetPrivateBuild

private function GetPrivateBuild() {
    //Get the file version for the notepad.
    var myFileVersionInfo : FileVersionInfo = FileVersionInfo.GetVersionInfo("%systemroot%\\Notepad.exe");
 
    //Print the private build number.
    textBox1.Text = "Private build number: " + myFileVersionInfo.PrivateBuild;
 }
