The fixlet for AutoUpdate 4.0.18061000 contains incorrect relevance and is causing reported failures to occur when the app is in fact getting updated.

Relevance should be look at CFBundleVersion not CFBundleShortVersionString

((exists file “/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/MAU2.0/Microsoft”) AND ((it as version < “4.0.18061000” as version) of string “CFBundleShortVersionString” of dictionary of file “/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/MAU2.0/Microsoft”))

Thanks for reporting it. We’ll look into it.

We have changed the relevance and published Updates for Mac Applications site to version 197
