[Solved] AdwCleaner - Alter Version Number


  • Community Moderator

    AdwCleaner is detected correctly on my system, but the displayed version number should be altered.
    In the application the displayed version number is 7.2.5.
    In VulnDetect the displayed version number is 7.2.
    So you should show the same version number that is shown in the app.

    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:     D:\PortableApps\PortableApps\_AdwCleanerPortable\adwcleaner.exe
    Product Name:           AdwCleaner
    Internal Name:          AdwCleaner
    Original Filename:      AdwCleaner.exe
    
    File Description:       AdwCleaner

    AdwCleaner is detected by VulnDetect and the version number is also correct.
    Issue solved!

    The rule for AdwCleaner used the "Product Version String". This is now changed to "File Version".

    This means that new (or unknown) versions will show the full 7.2.5.0, and when we have added a Specific Rule for that version, then this is changed to 7.2.5.
