Ok, I've read the entire Microsoft practices document written in 2007 as well as every InstallShield document there is.

I have my visual studio solution that contains:
InstallShield project
class library project
application1 project
application2 project

It builds on local machines as well as using TFS Build, no problems.. I ironed out all that, which was pretty easy!! :)

But, I don't understand versioning. Each one of my projects has a unique version number, including InstallShield. When I deploy, I end up with 4 different version numbers, one for the installer, then one for each included assembly.

Our current solution is to manually change the version numbers for each project.

Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to deploy with proper version numbers, etc..?? I have no idea where to start on this.

Thanks!
