Assembly: Microsoft.Synchronization.SimpleProviders (in microsoft.synchronization.simpleproviders.dll)

Return Value

The version number for the simple provider.


Provider version is tied closely to the data and metadata schema for a provider, not necessarily to the actual build or release number of the provider. If a provider changes its data or metadata schema, it should increase its version. Conversely, if a new release of a provider does not change the schema, it is not necessary to increase the version.
