Get Paint.NET Version In Code


Recommended Posts

First, you need to get the installation directory. It's at HKLM / Software / Paint.NET / TARGETDIR (btw make sure you test your installer on 64-bit, otherwise I can guarantee you'll get some things wrong ...)

Next, do an Assembly.Load() on PaintDotNet.exe in that directory.

Last, call GetCustomAttributes(typeof(AssemblyVersionAttribute)) on that Assembly reference.

What namespace is that in?
