Teams Machine Wide Installer - Old Version Detected as Installed

  We are trying to do an update of the machine-wide Teams installer so that new users who login to machines get the latest version and don't run into the 1 yr or older block. We are trying to install yet when the detection script runs, it is seeing the older version, in this case, and returning that Teams is already installed and nothing needs to be done.

I've included the log file below. Is this a bug in the Teams detection script? It seems like it should be comparing the versions and seeing the old one returning a false since the version is indeed newer then what is installed.

*** Starting Detection script for Teams Machine*Wide Installer  with version   PatchMyPC-Detection:738   9/22/2022 11:23:13 AM   3164 (0x0C5C)
Found Teams Machine-Wide Installer version installed on 20220525   PatchMyPC-Detection:707   9/22/2022 11:23:14 AM   3164 (0x0C5C)
Result of script for checking Detection: Installed   PatchMyPC-Detection:765   9/22/2022 11:23:14 AM   3164 (0x0C5C)

The detection script is signed so I don't think I can easily modify it.
