Hi Bob,

we did a couple changes, could you please give it another try on your machine as we have troubles to induce the very same situation in our environment?

Thank you.

FYI, I got this from ADU (see screenshot) today.
Quite strange, as old/new version are the same. ;)

Hi,

so based on the logs you sent me yesterday I got this reply from our developers:

If the user would click on "Driver versions", the date of the drivers would be visible. The problem with this driver is that we have a driver with a new date in the database, but the manufacturer has not raised the version number.

So it is kind of an internal problem, we currently consider adding the data into the details as well but this needs to be discussed with our UX guys.

Thank you.
