    Build Number

    How do you put build numbers in a MSVC++ project? I can't figure out how do to it automatically.

    what do you want to do exactly? the preprocessor macros __DATE__ and __TIME__ expand into string literals of the date and time that the file is compiled.

    I know it's possible in VB but in VC++ you only have version numbers. You can insert a version number by adding a resource called VERSION_INFORMATION_BLOCK (I'm not sure about the name). You can add (manually) the build number in this block.
