I have been using “Comodo” products from long time. I am big fan of “Comodo” security products.
But once the product update is released, the file version is always different than the actual file version after the product is installed. For example, I have recently downloaded the CIS file version 5.3.176757.1236 (Actual Version) from “FILEHIPPO” website. But if I go to file’s property, its showing 5.3.45685.1236 file version.So it is bit confusing for the end user which is the real update version.
Also, many websites allows CIS or other products for download. For example, Softpedia, Filehippo, Majorgeeks. But there is no consistency in the product update version once the update is released.
Moreover,even though CIS updator says “Product update is available”, there is no sign of product update on Comodo’s website.

May I ask what issue you have? You are using the version that is said in the properties. I don’t know how often such place like the ones you mention update it and I find it irrelevant if the numbers aren’t the same; the important thing is that you have the latest version and that the program is working.
Don’t take this as an attack because it is not; it’s a comments to what you wrote.
Also, when many sites are allowing download of latest product version; why COMODO is not showing the latest product update version with release notes.
Once CIS updater finds the product version update availability via internet, when you click on “Show Details” link on updater dialog-box, it will lead you to COMODO product release notes page. But in that case also latest version is unavailable.
So I think, before allowing any product update for download, COMODO should first show that update on there release notes page.Then it should allows other websites to host the same. By doing this end user will be rest assured that the product update is really available and its a valid update.
I am afraid there is no much sense to follow changelog offered by product updater, if it leads to webpage with obsolete Release Notes.
I guess CIS updater developers should
either manage Release Notes to be current,
either change CIS updater changelog/release notes link to point to something more useful.
E.g. to relevant forum topic, if Release notes website is weeks and at least 2 updates behind CIS.
Could it be left and right Comodo hands do not know what the other does ?
