FindVersion returns an IVersion interface which is commonly used to read or set a version's properties. The interface requires a string as input. The value of the string is case sensitive and a version's owner should be prefixed as owner.version. If an owner is not specified, only the versions which the user is connected owns are searched.

If it is the application developer's goal to obtain a reference to the DEFAULT version, it is recommended to use the DefaultVersion property as opposed to passing in a literal string to FindVersion method. The DefaultVersion method will always return a IVersion object referencing the default version of the workspace from which the name can be obtained through VersionName property on the IVersionInfo interface.
