Vista update file versions RRS feed

    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.

     

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

     

    Thank you,

    Mark
