Summary0004666: Version of Avira AV
DescriptionThere's still an ongoing error where SUMO picks the wrong file for calculating the Avira AV installed version number.
Presently, SUMO chooses to pick the file
"startui.exe" in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Avira\Antivirus folder
as the basis for determining whether or not Avira is on the very latest software version. Instead, there are at least 3 better file choices to be made, any of which would be more accurate for that purpose:
For example, the most recent version is installed on Win 10 64-bit, but SUMO is complaining that it's already outdated. That's because it's using "startui.exe" for determining the version number. In actuality, the installed product version is, and SUMO should be happy.
This problem is ongoing for several years now, and has yet to be adequately fixed.

Are the 4 files all in the same folders ?

Among the 3 recommended files, do they all have the right version info ? May i see screenshot of one of these exe files properties please ?
