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

private void GetProductVersion()
    // Get the file version for the notepad.
    FileVersionInfo myFileVersionInfo =
        FileVersionInfo.GetVersionInfo(Environment.SystemDirectory + "\\Notepad.exe");

    // Print the product version number.
    textBox1.Text = "Product version number: " + myFileVersionInfo.ProductVersion;
