Proper file versions after Vista update RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Does anyone understand the 'File version' list in the table entitled
    'Windows Vista, 32-bit versions' on the following page:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941600

    As you look down the list, you can notice the same file(s) listed with
    versions 6.0.6000.16553 *and* 6.0.6000.20672.

    (For example, look at the entries for 'Usbport.sys'.)

    Is this an Enterprise vs. Ultimate versioning thing??

     

    I do not understand why the same files are listed with different
    versions.

     

    Here is why I ask ...

    On a Vista Ultimate system that I have, the files listed here are of
    the latest version, .20672.

    However, when I apply this update to a system running Vista
    Enterprise, the resulting versions are the earlier, 16553.

    I uninstalled and re-installed this cumulative update on a Vista
    Enterprise system, with this same result.

     

    Subsequent attempts to re-apply the update (without first un-
    installing) produce the message box titled "Windows Update Standalone
    Installer" with the message:

    "The update does not apply to your system."

    I notice another difference in the Update history, which may or may
    not be related:
    - On Ultimate system, it says 'Update for Windows Vista (KB941600)'
    - On Enterprise system, it says 'Update for Windows (KB941600)'
     (the work 'Vista' is omitted)

     

    Given all this, I just am not certain that the latest version is in
    fact being applied to the Vista Enterprise system.

     

     

    WHAT SHOULD THE VERSION(S) FOR THESE FILES BE AFTER

    THIS UPDATE IS APPLIED???

     

     

    Any feedback/comments/insight anyone is able to provide on this topic
    is both greatly encouraged and appreciated.

     

    Thank you,

    Mark
