DcUpdater seems to only check for numbers and does not differentiate between versions that have letters in them but are otherwise the same.

It will see all of the below examples as being the same version.

[copy or print]

1.2.3
1.2.3a
1.2.3abcdefg
1.2.3.abcd

The original usual specification is about numbers only, and the version resources of files can only contain numbers. There are textual representations of those resources, but these are used for display only, not comparison/registration.
Guess mouser intended/s to check actual file version resources too thumbs up


[OT]
I really like ever incrementing build-numbers (5.0.1.1165, 5.10.1.1172, etc.)

Maintenance releases (i.e. bug fixes only) would generally be denoted as 1.81a, 1.81b, etc.

DcUpdater won't work with such a versioning system.
