Paint.NET reports a different version in Inventory

4/26/2018 634 Contributors

Just a heads up for Paint.NET users out there. It appears that the vendor of Paint.NET registers version 3.5.10 as 3.60.0 in the Windows Registry. PDQ Inventory extracts the application version from the registry therefore Paint.NET will show up with a different version than expected. 

Below are some screen shots showing the discrepancies.

Below shows the Windows Registry entry created by the Paint.NET vendor. This is the same value PDQ Inventory will use to determine the version.

Yet, below is the Title Bar for Paint.NET showing a different version

The PaintDotNet.exe file also shows version 3.5.10
