Hi Fred, It is fine to report such issues.
Sorry if I do not reply sometimes.

Saleen Updater uses a very basic way to determine program versions.
It justs checks the version number in the executable.

Some software developers do not bother updating this meta-information of their executables.

One good example is FireFox. I remember in the past, the version they were releasing, did not match the version information in the executable. But now anymore. I just checked now. I have Firefox version 29 and the .exe version is 29.0
Check this if you want
It says --> 
For example is Firefox 3.6.12
Now they have finally fixed it.

I hope the developers for the program you reported, will do the same soon.
Sometimes emailing them helps.

Firstly let me know if you don't want me to report these type of issues (latest versions not being

I have the latest TomTom 'My Drive Connect' program V (it updates TomTom satnav's.), but on running Updater it doesn't detect it and reports latest version as 3.0.2 build 100.
I'm assuming your program is only near to 100% able to get the version right as has been demonstrated in the past and can misreport ocassionally ... not always the programs fault.

If you don't want to be informed of these type of issues let me know and I will not bother you.

Regards Fred
