    string refStr = null;  
    refStr = "";  
    foreach (VSLangProj80.Reference3 temp in aProject.References)  
    {  
        aRef = temp;  
        refStr += (aRef.Name + " has a version number: " +aRef.Version   
+ "\n" + "\n");  
    }  
    MessageBox.Show(refStr);  
}  

Remarks

The version number is in the format:

Major version + Minor version + Build version + Revision.

For example, 10.3.5400.3.
