Engaged Sweeper III
I believe I found a small bug in the file scanning function. After some testing it appears that when using %ProgramFiles(x86)% in the path it will detect the "File version" attribute and when you use %ProgramFiles% it will detect the "Product version" attribute of the file.

This can be duplicated if you take a random executable file that has different "File version" and "Product Version" attributes and place it in C:\Program Files\Test\ and another copy of the same file it C:\Program Files (x86)\Test\

This problem was discussed via email. The information provided by the customer confirmed that WMI itself returns incorrect information. There is nothing we can do about this unfortunately.

The problem appears to be limited to certain executables and certain operating systems. 32/64-bit architecture does not appear to be a factor. We were able to get correct file version results for the LansweeperService.exe on a 32-bit Vista machine for instance, but the same executable on a 32-bit XP machine returned blank file info.

We cannot reproduce this behavior. The version number detected should always be the File Version. Could you contact us at and provide us with the following:
- For easy reference, a link to this forum thread.
- Screenshot of your web console landing page. You can access your landing page by clicking on the Lansweeper logo in the top left corner of the web console. Please show us the whole page.
- Output of the report below, preferably in Excel format. Replace "YourComputer" with the NetBIOS name of the machine you ran the File Scanning test on.
