This information are corresponds to the values of the  GAC for that assemblies as well .  We can provide the Assembly information either by Assembly.cs file or Assembly Information Dialog box.

AssemblyInfo.cs file is created automatically when you create an application in Visual Studio and It is located under the folder "Properties" .  This contains general Information about an assembly and that is controlled through the following
