It is strongly recommended that you provide the company name, product name, and product version. Providing this information enables the use of Windows Forms features such as Application.UserAppDataPath that make it easier to write applications that comply with the "Certified for Windows" program. For more information about the Certified for Windows program, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/certification.

private void AboutDialog_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   // Display the application information in the label.
   this.labelVersionInfo.Text = 
      this.CompanyName + "  " + 
      this.ProductName + "  Version: " +
      this.ProductVersion;  
}

private void AboutDialog_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    // Display the application information in the label.
    this.labelVersionInfo.set_Text(this.get_CompanyName() + "  " 
        + this.get_ProductName() + "  Version: "
