AssemblyVersion and FileVersion in Managed C++

In C#, when one specifies an assembly attribute for the Assembly version,
this becomes the file version as well. In Managed C++, there appears to be
no relation between the assembly attribute and the file version. In fact,
unless one specifies a version resource, no version attribute will be
generated at all.

Does anyone know a way to make the AssemblyVersion attribute generate a
FileVersion as it does in C#.

Thanks,

Wally

VC++.NET, like prior versions, still uses the VERSIONINFO resource from an
RC file for generating the executable's file/product version info. AFAIK,
you have to have a version info resource in the project to get file/product
version information into the executable.
