Do you want the DLL version, the framework version it targets, or
both? Manually or programmatically?

The .NET 2.0 SDK contains a tool CorFlags.exe that can show you which
framework version the executable was build against.

If you just want to find out how to get the DLL version when YOU (the
developer) wants it, open up the folder that contains the DLL, right-click
on the DLL and select Properties. Click on the "Version" tab and it shows
the version.
