Creating custom property for net assembly

0 votes
I need to create a custom property for my .Net assembly such that it's visible under the Details tab in the Windows Explorer, like something that sits parallelly with "File Description", "Type", "Product Version"... etc. I would have wanted to do this from within Visual Studio, but that's not really too important. What is I hope to do essentially is integrate a solution into an existing nant build process. So, the assemblies being affected post-compile is not something I'm worried about at all. TIA

While your compiler does not really support it, AssemblyFileVersionAttribute will work because of the compiler generating a win32 resource called VERSIONINFO in your assembly containing that information in it. And, that is, in fact, what your Windows actually reads. All the other attributes just get saved as metadata along with your code. So, you can make a tool to change that VERSIONINFO resource after the compiling is done.
