Incrementing FileVersion for VC++

In a recent posting, I talked about solutions to incrementing the FileVersion in Visual Studio .NET for VB.NET and C# project. This need was motivated by the changes in VS2008 that requires a FileVersion to be changed before the Windows Installer will replace a file.

Some of my projects have Native DLLs that are compiled in VS 2008's VC++ compiler. These files has the same problem with the installer, yet the previous solution ( did not address.

I found this very handy Add-In that works well with VS2008 (and previous versions) that will increment the FileVersion (Product Version, etc.) in the VC++ projects resource file.
