Generating custom Version Numbers

I'd like to use a custom script to determine my version number. Ideally I'd also like that version number to the project-build-version displayed on the build summary. Is there any way of doing this?

I'm currently just displaying the build number instead but it means my artifact (a nuget package) shows a different version number to the build.

    That looks perfect (note the hyperlink is broken).

    So to clarify, I'd have to start from after 1.0.0 if that number is already been used right? there's no reset this project button?

    You can re-start build number, but entire version should be unique, e.g. you can have 1.0.1, 1.0.2, 1.0.3, ... and then reset build number to one and have 2.0.1, 2.0.2, 2.0.3.

    So 1.0.0 is taken and I can never clear my build history and start again?

    Yeah - just re-create the project to start over. It's easy provided config is stored in appveyor.yml.
