....If the naming convention for the offline installer made more sense (i.e., using the name mb4-setup-consumer-4.4.7.xxx-1.0.1464-....exe for an installer that installs a v4.4.7.134 main product / scan engine instead of the current mb4-setup-consumer-4.4.6.xxx-1.0.1464....exe) I would have tried this workaround yesterday.

4.4.6.231 is the installer version. Our latest released stub (Online) MBSetup is 4.4.6.231. Our full (Offline) installer uses this online installer's version info in it's name string.

I've forwarded your comments and concerns to our Product Management team.

Someone in Product Management must have listened to @tetonbob. The name of the full offline installer for MB v4.4.7 at https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb4_offline has now been changed from mb4-setup-consumer-4.4.6.231-1.0.1464-1.0.45264.exe  (the file name when I downloaded on 27-Sep-2021) to mb4-setup-consumer-4.4.7.134-1.0.1464-1.0.45264.exe.

Did anyone test it with SUMo ?

Hi Kyle_Katarn:

I ran an over-the-top update with the "old" v4.4.7 full offline installer (i.e., mb4-setup-consumer-4.4.6.231-1.0.1464-1.0.45264.exe) on 27-Sep-2021 before it was renamed and re-posted as mb4-setup-consumer-4.4.7.134-1.0.1464-1.0.45264.exe on 30-Sep-2021, and my 27-Sep-2021 images <here> shows both SUMo and Control Panel | Programs | Programs and Features were correctly detecting the updated version as 4.7.7.134.

Since I already fixed the problem with the full offline installer on 27-Sep-2021 I can't tell you if a manual update with the small stub (online) installer (e.g., Settings | General | Application Updates | Check for Updates) will now change the DisplayName and DisplayVersion in the Windows registry to the correct v4.7.7.134, but Hsjafo's post today in the thread Has v4.4.7 Been Pulled? suggests that the v4.4.7 stub installer has been fixed as well.

Like BillH99999, I haven't tested the v4.4.8 BETA and I'm waiting for the release of the stable v4.4.8 stub installer to see if the registry entries are updated correctly.

...I just updated using Check for Updates.  I was updated to  4.4.8.137-1.0.1474 and SUMo shows me being on that release.  All looks good...

Hi BillH99999:

Just confirming that today's manual update (Settings | General | Application Updates | Check for Updates) ran as expected and both SUMo v5.14.1 and Control Panel | Programs | Programs and Features correctly detect that I'm on Malwarebytes v4.4.8.137.

Sadly, the full offline installer for v4.4.8.137-1.0.1474 that was posted this afternoon at https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb4_offline has gone back to using the old, confusing nomenclature.  I was only able to tell that a new offline installer had been posted today because the file name now specifies that the Component Package bundled inside the installer is the latest version 1.0.1474, as  @tetonbob  explained <here>.

@lmacri

Yes, that is the same result I got.  Looks good now.  I was hoping they would stick with the MB version number on the offline installer.  I still think the way they name it is too confusing.  At the very least if they need the installer version, they could include both.

Kyle,

SUMo has the correct version number listed.  All good there.

The issue @lmacri and I are referring to is that the offline installation program version number is not the  same as the version number of the Malwarebytes version it is installing, but rather the version of the offline installer program itself.  This is confusing.  We think it would be much less confusing if the offline installer had the same version number as the version of Malwarebytes that it installs.
