If you run _INetUpdater() or similar functions, you probably find this UDF may help you.

Happy AutoIt to everyone!

Func _IsFirstOneNewer($sSource, $sDest) ; FYI: newer means not equal too
    Local $bRC = False, _
            $aSource = StringSplit($sSource, '.'), _
            $aDest = StringSplit($sDest, '.')
    
    If 4 <> UBound($aSource) Or 4 <> UBound($aDest) Then
        SetError(1)
        Return $bRC
    EndIf
    
    For $i = 1 To 4
        If Number($aSource[$i]) > Number($aDest[$i]) Then Return Not $bRC
    Next
    Return $bRC
EndFunc   ;==>_IsFirstOneNewer

Dude, you got the wrong forum.

And can't you just look at the numbers and see which one is bigger? :)
