View Full Version : Update Service not recognizing new version after patch

I created a small sample project to create a patch : Version 1 and Version 2 (Standard Project, because I want to get a small msp file)

Everything works fine, update services shows messages for version 1 and patches my sample app. After patching control panel->software tells me that my version 1 is now version 2. So far so good. But Update-Service still shows me messages for Version 1, so I think it does not recognize the new version number. Is the only work around to use conditions? Or do I have to register the patched version again as version 2? I though that re-registering is done by the patch.

The patch should be updating your version number. Having said that, Developer does have a bug with standard projects if you are using the "custom version" property of the Update Service. KB Q106788 has more info including a work around. But this only applies if you are using the 'custom version' property.

Are you using the 'custom version' property?
