Summary0004307: No Distinction between Free and Paid Version of Same Products lead to Wrong Update Suggestion and Dead Ends
DescriptionMany Software products have Free and Paid versions. SUMo does not distinguish between them and hence will imply an update is needed for a free version that does NOT exist for the free version - only the paid one. For example, as of this writing Macrium Reflect (https://www.macrium.com, a backup software) have V7 for paid version but V6 for Free. SUMo suggested I update to V7 which is incompatible not to mention NOT free....
Steps To Reproduce1) Install latest V6 of aboove Macrium Reflect on Windows 7
2) Install and deploy SUMo 5.1.5.355 and see you get "Update to 7.0.2180.0" suggestion

note: Today as I write this is 4-12-17. Depending on WHEN you're reading thgis bug, there may be a Free V& so you will need another product with similar circumstances (Free & Paid versions which are DIFFERENT in version number for SAME products) to reproduce bu

I cannot find any information in the properties. There is only a license file in the install directory.
