[Solved] Skype (classic) - Alter Version Number


  • Community Moderator

    Skype (classic) is detected correctly on my system, also the detected version number 8.28 is correct.
    But the displayed version number in the app is 8.28.0.41 so you should show the same version number.
    Tell me if you need a screen shot of the Help -> About window.


    Here the information extracted from the EXE file:

    File name and path:     C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Skype for Desktop\Skype.exe
    Product Name:           Skype
    Internal Name:          Skype.exe
    Original Filename:      Skype.exe

    The version number 8.29.0.50 is displayed correctly.

    Today I installed an update for Skype (classic) (new version 8.29.0.50) but VulnDetect detects version number 8.29.
    The displayed version number in the app is 8.29.0.50 so you should show the same version number.
    Tell me if you need a screen shot of the Help -> About window.
