Assembly Information Dialog Box


This article applies to Visual Studio 2015. If you're looking for the latest Visual Studio documentation, use the version selector at the top left. We recommend upgrading to Visual Studio 2019. Download it here

The Assembly Information dialog box is used to specify the values of the .NET Framework global assembly attributes, which are stored in the AssemblyInfo file created automatically with your project. In Solution Explorer, the file is located in the My Project node in Visual Basic (click Show All files to view it); it is located under Properties in Visual C#. For more information about assembly attributes, see Attributes.

To access this dialog box, select a project node in Solution Explorer, and then, on the Project menu, click Properties. When the Project Designer appears, click the Application tab. On the Application page, click the Assembly Information button.
