[wix-users] unable to make AssemblyFileVersion work

That is a bind variable not a bind path. <smile/>  Yes, it should work but the "assemblyFileVersion" bind data is only available if the assembly is marked Assembly=".net". It's  small weakness in .NET related bind variables, the binder doesn't get all .NET related data since it can be expensive.

I did not post Brannon's sample code in the last post, but Rob are you indicating that the following code using a name bindpath for Product/@Version should work?
        Manufacturer="Autonomous Solutions, Inc."

Thanks for setting me straight, and sorry for any confusion.
