SUMo v5.17.6 - Inconsistent Detection of HWiNFO Portable Updates

Post by lmacri »

I am currently using HWiNFO Portable v7.46.5110 on a Win 10 Pro v22H2 machine. There are two executables bundled in the .zip file, HWiNFO32.exe and HWiNFO64.exe.

According to the download page at https://www.hwinfo.com/download/ the latest available versions for the installer (.exe) and portable (.zip) editions of HWiNFO are currently v7.46 (confirmed at the version history at https://www.hwinfo.com/version-history/) but there is also a v7.47.5120 BETA version currently available for testing for the portable version.

I have detection of BETA versions turned off in SUMo v5.17.6 (Options | Settings | Allow Beta Versions | DISABLED) so SUMo should report that my HWiNFO v7.46 executables are up-to-date. However, the results I have seen with SUMo over the past week have varied from day to day. For example, yesterday SUMo reported both my 32-bit executable needed to be updated to v7.47.5115, and that my 64-bit executable needed to be updated to v7.47.5120 ...

...but today it reports that my 64-bit executable is current while my 32-bit executable needs to be updated. Note that today's result is the SUMo result I've usually seen for the past week or so, and that SUMo always reports that I should update my 32-bit portable HWiNFO32.exe to v7.47.5115 (recall the latest BETA is currently v7.47.5120).

When I search the SUMo database at https://www.kcsoftwares.com/sumo/start/ ... ery=hwinfo I see a mix of executable names and version numbers, and I'm not sure if SUMo is able to correctly differentiate between executables for the installer vs the portable versions, or if SUMo is able to correctly differentiate the stable vs BETA executables.

Hi Kyle_Katarn:

Unfortunately, the bug at https://www.kcsoftwares.com/bugs/view.php?id=7325 (Incorrect detection for HWiNFO) still isn't fixed for me in the latest SUMo Portable v5.17.7.

SUMo Portable 5.17.7 is still recommending I update my 32-bit executable to HWiNFO Portable v7.47.5125 (i..e., the hwi_747_5125.zip portable BETA version currently available on the official download page at https://www.hwinfo.com/download/) even though the recommended stable release is HWiNFO Portable v7.46.5110 (hwi_746.zip).

Also note that the version number of the latest SUMo v5.17.7.539 (rel. 11-Jun-2023) is incorrectly listed as v5.17.6.539 at https://www.kcsoftwares.com/index.php?download.
