I have 2 PC's running MB Pro version 3.2.2.2018. I just noticed in other posts that people are referencing v3.2.2.2029.  Several days ago I updated to component package v1.0.212 by clicking on "install application updates" button from applications settings page. Both PC's updated and both are running  MB with no problems. My questions are: Should I have gotten .2029 automatically? Do I want .2029? Why didn't I get .2029 when I clicked on the install applications update button? Thanks for any insight with this.

I downloaded from your link. Installed, ran a manual scan and everything seems to be working ok. Thank you.

I was more concerned about why I didn't get the download automatically or when I clicked on install application updates and it told me I was up to date????

Automatic downloads are metered out, so there may be minor delays in receiving them. However, v3.2 was supposed to have fixed "install application updates" so that you always get the latest version.

Tagging @nikhils for clarification.

Hello @Phxflyer

If you have 3.2.22018 with the latest CU 1.0.212 you don't actually need the 2029 upgrade.

That version has only a small change to the Installer to fix upgrade issues from 3.1.2 to 3.2.2. SInce you are already on 3.2.2 you are good to go.

Also the reason you did not get the latest Version 2029 when you choose "Install application updates" is that the file versions of most of the files matches the version of 2018 so we don't replace the files.

Hope this helps.

Thank you.

Thanks for the response. That answers the question clearly. I really wouldn't have even been aware of the 2029 update if I hadn't read about it in another post.

Everything is working fine and there were no installation problems.

It might be nice for a staff member to post in the forum (at least), the latest updates for the program when they become available and whether it's necessary to install them. I know this is done to some degree, but not always as in this case. 2029 was available but I had no idea whether I needed it or not. Again, thanks.

Hello @Phxflyer

Agree to your point. For the most part most of the Upgrades we make are announced in the Forums as a pinned topic on the top.

Also glad to know everything is working well .

Thank you,

Many of these minor updates don't affect you. You don't need to have the latest greatest version of Malwarebytes installed. As long as your version is running without any issues and the protection database rules are current YOU ARE AS PROTECTED AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN BE. Let Malwarebytes update itself and stop worrying that the sky is falling.
