      The About box is empty, and the version not displayed, when using the MSI to install NPanday. This is because the .AddIn file generated in ~/Documents/Visual Studio 200x/AddIns is different and does not contain the About Box info and the same description tag.

      It would be good if the AddIn got the console version from the assembly version of the AddIn instead of parsing the description. I'm not sure if there is an alternative for the About box that would make it available inside the AddIn DLL instead - maybe as a resource?

      If not, then the MSI WiX script generator needs to be changed to create an identical AddIn file with the additional information. We should also add a comment or automated way to DRY the info for the AddIn template.
