I wanted today to display the application version in front of our builds, something I already did on the past but never with the VCS version.

In fact I used the same BUILD_VCSNUMBER that I described here: Build multiple ClickOnce deployment packages using MSBuild and Team City

Go in the General Settings of your build and adapt as following:

When your software is built it will now display the version:
