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.

The following code example displays information about the application in a Label contained by a Form. This example requires that the CompanyName, ProductName and ProductVersion have been set.

   // Display the application information in the label. 
   this->labelVersionInfo->Text = String::Format(  "{0} {1} Version: {2}", this->CompanyName, this->ProductName, this->ProductVersion );
