TTP "Sparkle"-updating-c​omponent does not reflect updates in "System Info; Software; Installations" 20 May 2016 16:57 #7223

The Tech Tool Pro "Sparkle"-based-updating-component does not appear to reflect recent updates under the
"Applications":"Utilities":"System Information.app":"Software":" Installations" heading .

Please use a more-standardized update mechanism .

If you select the TechTool Pro application icon, and type Command I to bring up the Info box for the file, what version number is shown?

As far as I know, Sparkle is the industry-standard on the Macintosh platform. Many of the applications I have use it.

I don't think that you were paying attention -- don't look in the "Software":"Applications", section -- look in the "Software":"Installations" section !

You are correct. I was looking in the wrong place, and the version number for TechTool Pro 8.0.4 is blank. On my iMac, other programs have the correct version number in "Software; Installations". Thanks for your report, which I have forwarded to the beta administrator for TechTool Pro.

The beta administrator for TechTool Pro updated versions 8.0.1, 8.0.2, and 8.0.3 of TechTool Pro 8 on his Mac and he was not able to reproduce the missing version number. His report shows 8.0.4 in all three cases. In my case, downloading and running the TechTool Pro 8.0.4 installer does not solve the problem, which suggests that Sparkle is not the cause.

As I tried to tell you, earlier today, not only is the version missing, but the entire entry is missing .
I HAVE a screen-shot of the phenomena, but, somehow, it will not upload, to your site .
