registry entries for the 32bit version of XnViewMP 1.3.1 display 1.3.0.

Post by meatflavour »

Hi,

The registry entries for the 32bit version of XnViewMP 1.3.1 display 1.3.0. You can also see this in the control panel and the details of the installer file. When you run the application, the help > about shows 1.3.1. The 64bit version displays the correct versions in all places.

The problem we have is that the software we use to manage software upgrades doesn't see that a new version is present because it's checking the registry entries: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\XnViewMP_is1 where the DisplayName is still XnViewMP 1.3.0 and the DIsplayVersion is 1.3.0. So we don't get the latest update for 32bit versions.

A couple of questions, if i may:
- is this a problem you are able to fix in the short term?
- is the 1.4 version being released soon?
- will you continue to offer 32bit versions in the future?

thanks in advance
