Summary0005524: Strawberry Perl product name consolidation
DescriptionI've installed the public domain distribution Strawberry Perl and the open source distribution Lyx which includes Strawberry Perl as a component. SUMo detects both. (It doesn't detect Lyx itself as Lyx has its version information not in a standard Windows version info format except for its uninstaller but otherwise in folder name.) A look at the SUMo report reveals that while I've installed the 64 bit edition on my 64 bit operating system edition, Lyx has installed a 32 bit edition of itself and its component Strawberry Perl. A closer look at this report, version info and SUMo server showed that SUMo uses product name for the 64 bit edition for reporting product name of Strawberry Perl while using file description instead for the 32 bit edition!
Please fix reporting of the 32 bit edition by turning to the product name instead of file description for SUMo!

When SUMo server looses its product information (probably due to some expiration) a lookup doesn't provide an error message nor does it retain the query as prefilled value for the standard query page. I perfer if this behaviour of SUMo server changes to provide a one line warning which query didn't find any results above or below the form field of SUMo server standard query page and prefill this editable form field with the unsuccessful query. It makes sense to modify the query which is easier when prefilled.
Additional InformationIt seems that I'm the only SUMo user of Strawberry Perl as SUMo didn't inform my about an available update released 10 days ago.

Another side-effect of probably being the only SUMo user of this product is that SUMo server looses its version and product information within several hours while SUMo client keeps it if not closed. (SUMo server lookup will not lead to the lost entry nor provide an error message but instead turns to the standard query page with no search string prefilled by the lookup.)

And SUMo server had no URL for update stored although Strawberry Perl MSI installer provides corresponding URL. I've already reported this URL this morning seperately as proposed and preferred by KC Softwares.

Find attached the screenshots for SUMo report, SUMo server company report and Strawberry Perl version info of one of its main binaries. (This version info is identical for all three main binaries.)
TagsNo tags attached.
