Installed Versions not detected correctly

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I saw in CCleaner Cloud at "Installed Software" that:

  • some applications/games don't have a version number
  • some applications/games have an invalid version number

 

I know that CCleaner Cloud reads this data from the list of installed applications in Windows (I have Windows 10 Pro).
If I open this list in the control panel then I see the same problems.

If you implement the suggestion "Update Manager" (CCleaner Cloud scans my computer for installed applications and then informs me when there are new versons available) then the correct detection of my installed applications is essential!
The suggestion "Update Manager" can be found here: http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=43816

Here is a list of incorrect version numbers.
The "Version displayed" is the version number, hat is shown in CCleaner Cloud.
The "File Version" and the "Product Version" version are taken from the EXE file.

In this posting I sent the data of all applications with invalid version numbers.

But I did not check all of my installed applications (just the applications, that don't have a version number and applications, where I know that the version number is invalid).

I will send drivers and also games (they are shown in CCleaner Cloud) with invalid version numbers after my vacation.

 

You see that detecting the correct version number is not always easy, because

  • some applications don't write a version number in the list of installed applications
  • some applications write a version number when they are installed, but when they are updated they don't update the version number

 

So either you encourage the developers worldwide to write proper version information (nearly impossible).

Or you have do determine the version yourself (sometimes the "File Version" helps and sometimes the "Product Version" helps).

In alternative way would be to work with hashes (MD5 or SHA) for each file, so you know the version of an application by storing the hash together with valid version information.

Hello,

 

I saw that also TeamSpeak has an invalid version number shown in Windows.

So I updated the list in my first posting.
