I have two questions on the new version 3.3.7115.  I just downloaded and installed it over 3.2 the other day.  I am using Windows 10 1903.

When I start up MusicBee it shows version 3.3.7115 in Help > About.  When I look at Control Panel, it shows that I have version 3.2 installed.  Shouldn't it show 3.3.7115?

I now have two icons for MusicBee in the start menu.  One icon is the bee with no musical note behind it.  This icon is not under a folder.  The other icon has the bee with the musical note.  This icon is under a folder that also has the name MusicBee.  Clicking on either icon starts MusicBee version 3.3.7115.  Is this normal to have two like this?

Thanks,
Bill

i am guessing one is the store version and the other is the desktop install. I think only the desktop install shows in the control panel.
No idea why it would show the old version but as long as help/about shows v3.3 you are good

Thanks for the quick reply.  I would kind of like to get this cleaned up.  If I uninstall the current program on my PC and reinstall the program from the website will I lose anything?  I spent a lot of time getting the settings, layout, cover art, and lyrics correct and would hate to lose all of that.

Thanks,
Bill

Thanks!

I uninstalled the Windows App Store version and now I have only one icon on my start menu.  This icon is for the version I downloaded and installed from the website.  I originally had downloaded and installed version 3.2.  A couple days ago I had downloaded and installed 3.3.7115 over the top of 3.2.  

Interestingly if I start up the program it shows version 3.3.7115 in Help > About.  If I go to the windows settings for apps it shows version 3.2.  Same in control panel.  So I installed version 3.3.7115 again over the top of the existing installation and windows settings still shows 3.2.  Shouldn't it have been updated to show 3.3.7115?

Thanks,
Bill

Anyone have any ideas on why Windows shows I have version 3.2 even after installing 3.3.7115?

Thanks,

That's often been the case for me, I wouldn't worry about it.

Thanks for the reply.  I'm not really worried, just curious.

Thanks,

It could be a result of different sorts of installations and updates.
The ways you can install and update MusicBee can be confusing, and is—as far as I know—not clearly explained anywhere on the website.

But psychoadept is right, just check Help > About, and that will give you the version you are actually running.
