[Solved] VLC media player - Alter Version Number

  • Community Moderator

    VLC media player is detected correctly on my system, also the detected version number is correct.
    But the displayed version number in the app is 3.0.4 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:

    This is fixed (some time ago)

    Remember that most Products with version number like VLC requires a Specific Rule before they will display correctly.
