I have v_GS_INSTALLED_SOFTWARE which display Microsoft Edge version 198.0.1108.56

2023-09-11_13-31-12 VITATT001 Edge 98.jpg

Why this difference?

    Hi, @Duchemin, Dominique

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    The reason for the difference in Microsoft Edge version numbers between Resource Explorer and v_GS_INSTALLED_SOFTWARE is that they are pulling the version number from different sources.

    Resource Explorer is displaying the version number of the currently installed version of Microsoft Edge, while v_GS_INSTALLED_SOFTWARE is displaying the version number of the last version of Microsoft Edge that was installed on the device. This means that the version number displayed in v_GS_INSTALLED_SOFTWARE may not be the same as the currently installed version.

    You may compare the view v_Add_Remove_Programs with the Resource Explorer.

    There is no different when you are viewing the same nodes within resource explorer as within Sql.
