    Name of the game:

    • The Elder Scrolls Online

    Developer:

    • ZeniMax Online Studios

    Website:

    Download Site:

    Notes:

    • The game has a separate launcher (like Elite Dangerous)
    • In the game folder there is an 64-Bit exe (eso64.exe) so I guess on 32-Bit systems there will be a 32-Bit exe (eso.exe)

    Game Launcher

    Version number displayed in the launcher:

    • 1.3.6.1603583

    App-Icon of the Launcher (in ICO format)

    Product Name:           ZeniMax Online Studios Launcher

    Summary

    Both version numbers (of the launcher and the game) are not stored in the exe files.
    So you need to find an other way to detect them.

    @NoxPlayer Currently I am tidy-up this forum and here I saw, that for The Elder Scrolls Online thee is already a request from 2018.
    This other request has all required information, so I will merge the two topics.

    @NoxPlayer can you please post some information about the game and about the launcher?
    Like you see it for Star Citizen (different EXE files for the game and the launcher, both have different app-icons).
    Thank you!

    Here is a template that you can use:

    Name of the app:
    xxxxx
     
    Developer:
    xxxxx
     
    Website:
    xxxxx
     
    Download Site:
    xxxxx
     
    Version number displayed in the app:
    xxxxx

    App-Icon
    Please send the App-Icon as ico-format to tom@vulndetect.com
    If you need help extracting the app-icon then see here

    Please send also the version information for the launcher and the game (two separate version information).
    You can use the Toolbox for VulnDetect to extract the version info.

    Thank you for helping us.



  • I know that The Elder Scrolls Online is automatically updated.
    But other games that also have this Auto-Update feature are already detected by VulnDet (for example Elite Dangerous or Star Citizen).

    The makes it comfortable for players to download larger patches/updates for games when they don't want to play.
    So the update can be downloaded while users are working or not actively use the PC and when they want to play the game they don't have to wait until an update is installed.

    Here the information extracted from the EXE file:

    File name and path:     E:\Zenimax Online\The Elder Scrolls Online\game\client\eso64.exe
    Product Name:           ESO
    Internal Name:          ESO

    By the way: there is also a separate suggestion for this feature: Show updates for Games.
    Feel free to vote for this suggestion or to comment it.

    This game is updated to newest version whenever you log unto server - so, as you can't play using old version, it makes little sense (IMO) to bother about it.
