what do you guys say about adjusting the title of 'Vmware Tools' package in the publisher so it could be shown on the compliance reports more precisely?

Right now the shorter build number is being shown (see att. pic), we would prefer to see on the reports full build number as it is presented on vmware site. (https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Tools/12.1/rn/VMware-Tools-1210-Release-Notes.html)

What do you think?

We need to use a shorter value as the maximum value a number can be in any given segment of a version is 65535. This limitation is because of the Windows Update service/agent.

The docs for Windows Installer (MSIs) covers this but I don't think one exists that talks about this specifically for this WUA: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/msi/version


ahh damn, got it, thank you for super-fast reply
