    Default Re: Revision versus Build

    Hi Peter,

    IIRC, in 2001/2002 Microsoft "officially" switched to the four-part major.minor.build.revision version numbering model. That is what SetupBuilder supports. The file version is stored in two 32-bit integers.

    The most common software versioning scheme (major.minor.revision.build) differs from the official "standard" Microsoft version number scheme (major.minor.build.revision). In Windows, you have to use the Microsoft version number scheme. Otherwise, you might run into a situation where you replace a new file with an older one.

    And for the Microsoft Certification exam, the correct answer to "The correct format for version is major.minor.revision.build" is FALSE <g>

    BTW, here is an interesting link:

    I'll add this information to the documentation. Thank you for your suggestion!!!

    Friedrich
