I have already seen the AddInInfoManager project in community samples solution on GitHub, but I'm looking for an easy way to get the current version of the configuration written in config.daml.
If you are referring to <AddInInfo desktopVersion> tag, I too am struggling for a way to display this on my splash screen. ESRI, you should revamp your configuration templates to at least show these basic things on the splash screen, Pro version, initializing dots, etc. I am pulling my hair out over here trying to find examples of these simple things!
