DLL Version ?

Oct 28, 2010 at 9:33 PM

What is the best way to check the version (or Release) of a deployed json.net dll?  The dll's have been set to file version 3.5.0.0 for some time even after new releases.  

 

This has caused us some issues because Visual Studio came across two different versions/releases but didn't realize it (and didn't give us a warning) because the dlls have the same version number.

Right clicked -> Properties -> Details tab

I see the following:

File Description: Newtonsoft Json.NET

Type: Application extension

File version: 3.5.0.0

Product name: Newtonsoft Json.NET

Product version: 3.5.0.0

Copyright: Copyright Newtonsoft 2008

Size: 312KB

Date modified: 9/17/2010 4:09 PM

Language: Language Neutral

Original filename: Newtonsoft.Json.dll

Doing the same thing on an older version of the dll gives me the same info except for a different modified date and size.  

I know that the modified date is specific to my file os.  I can't tell you which release the older version is because it doesn't say.  It also says it is version 3.5.0.0 just like the new version.  The size on the older version is 200 KB.
