Hi all

I'm writing a nightly build for our windows store app project. I would like to increment the version found in the Package.Manifest when the nightly build runs, ideally i'd also like to commit that change back to the underlying source repo, we are using git hub. Is any of this possible?

Many thanks

    You can use PowerShell to modify the file. Depending on its format this could be Regex, search-replace or XML.

    For pushing changes back during the build look at this article:
