Property Value

Type: System::String
Information about a private version of the file or nullptr 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.

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

        // Print the private build number.
        textBox1->Text = String::Concat( "Private build number: ", myFileVersionInfo->PrivateBuild );
