  • Community Moderator

    Name of the app:

    • Vim


    • Vim Developers


    Download Site:

    Version number displayed in the app:

    • 8.1 and 8.1.1 (see below)

    App-Icon: (in ICO format)



    • The icon is only available in 32 x 32 pixel.

    Here the information extracted from the EXE file:

    File name and path:     C:\Program Files (x86)\Vim\vim81\gvim.exe
    Product Name:           Vim
    Internal Name:          VIM
    Original Filename:      VIM.EXE
    File Description:       Vi Improved - A Text Editor
    Company:                Vim Developers
    Legal Copyright:        Copyright © 1996
    Legal Trademarks:       Vim
    File Version String:    8, 1, 282, 0
    File Version: 
    Product Version String: 8, 1, 282, 0
    Product Version:

    Abut the Version number

    On the website they write version 8.1
    In the App they also write 8.1 in Help -> Version (see first screen shot below).
    But when you start Vim you see a welcome screen with version 8.1.1 (see second screen shot below).

    Vim Help -> Verion page


    Vim Start page


    So Vim is Version 8.1 and including patch 1.
    This would explain version 8.1.1 but in the EXE this can not be found.

    Cool Vim is detected properly

    @olli_s Correct, we needed a Specific Rule first - and ahem, something about the icons needed a fix after launching VulnDetect.

    All should be fixed and two versions of Vim are detected correctly. Unknown and future versions will be added as we see them.

    The app icon is not shown.
    And in VulnDetect the version ? is shown

    Vim added
    The patch level is written in this way:
    So this will be the format we will adhere to, despite this not being visible in the UI.
