    The version information built into these files is a different format than
    TCMD's Help \ About and the internal version variable.

    D:\>echo %_4ver.%_build
    10.00.44

    D:\>echo %@VERINFO[%COMSPEC%]
    10.0.44

    These files all have 10.0.44:
    4nt.exe
    English.dll
    EnglishD.dll
    French.dll
    FrenchD.dll
    German.dll
    GermanD.dll
    ide.exe
    ShrAlias.exe
    TakeCmd.dll
    tcc.exe
    tcmd.exe

    I had suggested (I think before V9 beta) that minor versions always be 2
    digit strings and build numbers be 3 digit strings, with leading zeros as
    needed, and even that the major version also have a leading zero for the
    older versions. My TCSTART (shared with older versions, also known as
    4START) I create a variable VER which conforms to my suggestion, e.g.,
    06.01.245.

    Is this causing a problem?

    Only because my regression testing expected the two to be the same,
    and my flavor of Monkishness likes them to be the same.

    So, no, not in the practical sense. Only theoretically.

    It's not anything new; you'd see the same thing in v9, v8, v7, v6, and v5.
