handling 1.0.* version number format

Jul 14, 2011 at 2:39 PM

This isn't really a big deal, but I just figured I'd let you know ..

When you want VS to generate build and revision numbers automatically, the format to use is "1.0.*" (1.0.*.* is invalid)

After building with this addin, I see the following ..

"warning CS1607: Assembly generation -- The version '1.0.*' specified for the 'file version' is not in the normal 'major.minor.build.revision' format"

.. which is easily solved by changing it back to the default 1.0.0.0.

Can you write howto reproduce the issue?
