Version number strangeness

The last time there was a portable update ( there was no
corresponding desktop version. The download was A week
later I'd check and get the same.

With this update I check again for the desktop. ETL-tools'
history page shows but the desktop download is
I then check the executable inside the new portable version and
the properties dialog box says

Okay, so I run the portable version to see what the About box says
but it errors. Apparently paths have changed. Error is:

Could not find file 'k:\PortableApps\DatabaseBrowserPortable\App\DatabaseBrowser\db.mdb'

Right now my db.mdb file is in App\DefaultData so things must've
changed but didn't get updated properly.
Wipe out the whole directory and install fresh.
Apps starts up fine. About box says
Both executables are dated 6/21/13.

Something's not quite right at ETL-tools methinks.


Could not find file 'PortableApps\DatabaseBrowserPortable\App

Had to manually copy db.mdb from \App\DefaultData to \App\DatabaseBrowser\ and the app starts up.

Suffice to say, an odd issue, but probably just a path in the code that changed in one place but not the other.
