Why only version "1.0.0" is used in Active Setup?

Answer Summary:
Infact version format is, Four numbers separated by commas Example #1: 6,0,2462,0001 Example #2: 4,71,1113,0 Example #3: 2,1,4026,0 Example #4: 8,0,6001,18702 Example #5: 1,0,0,0 If a version value is present, the component’s command will run only if the corresponding version in the user part is smaller or not present. Once run, the version number is copied to the user part. If you want a component’s command to run again, you need to increase the version number.

There is no law like you should use only 1.0.0 in Version value of Active Setup

 

Infact version format is, Four numbers separated by commas 

Example #1: 6,0,2462,0001

Example #2: 4,71,1113,0

Example #3: 2,1,4026,0

Example #4: 8,0,6001,18702

Example #5: 1,0,0,0

 

If a version value is present, the component’s command will run only if the corresponding version in the user part is smaller or not present.

 

Once run, the version number is copied to the user part. If you want a component’s command to run again, you need to increase the version number.

 

That is what Windows updates do, e.g. when you install Internet Explorer 8 on a machine that only had IE7 before. By increasing the version number, the initial user configuration is guaranteed to run again.

  • Thank You.
  • If you want a component’s command to run again, you need to increase the version number or delete it from HKCU hive.
