    Shavlic Protect expects LDR file version instead of GDR version after installing KB2984930




      KB2984930 remediates a bug introduced by MS14-039 (KB2973201). After having installated this bugfix, Shavlik Protect warns "File version is less than expected. [C:\ProgramFiles\Common Files\MICROSOFT SHARED\INK\TIPSKINS.DLL 6.1.7601.18532< 6.1.7601.22722]".


      The file versions of TIPSKINS.DLL
      -   before the bugfix was applied  6.1.7601.18512

      -   after the bugfix was applied    6.1.7601.18532

      In the article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2984930/en-us Microsoft enlists both versions:

      Tipskins.dll    6.1.7601.18532    1,247,232    14-Jul-2014    02:02    x64

      Tipskins.dll    6.1.7601.22743    1,247,232    14-Jul-2014    01:52    x64


      The "File information" section is introduced by an explanation about the differing versions:

      The files that apply to a specific product, SR_Level (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table:


      Version Product Milestone Service branch
      6.1.760 1.18xxxWindows 7SP1GDR
      6.1.760 1.22xxxWindows 7 SP1 LDR

      So why should we have a LDR version after having updated from a GDR version?

      Thanks for considering this issue.
