you can't open them with IL Disassembler,
//for the version
//in generally(i.e for copyright info)
foreach(object o in Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetCustomAttributes(true))
    if (o is System.Reflection.AssemblyCopyrightAttribute)
                    System.Reflection.AssemblyCopyrightAttribute at=o as System.Reflection.AssemblyCopyrightAttribute;

I suppose you could use the methods in .NET to load an assembly from the filename. I would imagine that if you attempted to load a non-managed assembly .NET would throw an exception telling you that. Otherwise it would load, and you could then use Reflection to interrogate the assembly for its version number.
