At the moment I'm testing Dell Updates using the Dell Kace K1000 appliance. While testing I noticed that Dell Updates for BIOS fails on most computers without any specific reason (unless I miss some log files) and another strange thing is that when it updates the Nvidia drivers it checks a strange number:

I get the update to my machine, install it, Windows restarts but then I get the update pushed again, I checked the machine in the inventory and its exactly the same as above, however in "Programs and Features" I check for the Nvidia Display Drivers and they report version 266.87:

Is KACE reading the wrong version number ?
My updates are set to Inventory and Update.


Apparently KACE gets the number from here :

*I just installed Nvidia drivers 311.35

Kace reads the wrong information from the driver currently installed or the driver package in Kace itself reports a wrong version number causing the Kace Updates to loop continuesly.
