Dave, isn't it CCleaner install that builds the Properties? For the
test I completely uninstalled CCleaner, then downloaded and installed
the latest version. FileHippo wasn't involved with the installation.
But after I was done, the CCleaner window top left corner said
"v5.58.7209 (64-bit)", as does the Options > About screen. However if
I look at Properties > Details for CCleaner64.exe, it says "184.108.40.20609"
for both the file version and product version.
Which version number is correct? I assume it is the one without the
inserted ".0" and it is "5.58.7209" that gets published as the official
number, which then FileHippo puts in its database to check, presumably
against Properties (or the internal Windows data that Properties is
derived from). So when the two version numbers don't match, FileHippo
says the installed version is out of date, even though it is the latest.
Is this not correct? If I understand it correctly, it is a CCleaner
problem, not FileHippo's. It probably needs a new CCleaner version,
with consistent version data, to fix this.
I have seen this sort of problem before with another product. When I
contacted FileHippo, they said it had to be corrected in the other
product. There was nothing they could do about it. Jeff
