 reflection/app version

Hi

A simple task, i want to retrieve the version of the currently executing
assembly the following code retrieves all other Attributes of the assembly,

Dim myatt As AssemblyVersionAttribute
Dim obj As Object
Dim myAssembly As [Assembly]
Dim attributes() As Object
myAssembly = [Assembly].GetExecutingAssembly
attributes = myAssembly.GetCustomAttributes(False)

For Each obj In attributes
Trace.WriteLine(obj.GetType)
Next

What am i missing?

AssemblyVersionAttribute is a pseudo-custom attribute that gets
treated specially during compilation, and isn't represented like other
custom attributes in metadata. To retrieve the version, you use
myAssembly.GetName().Version.
