Is Ver. 1.0.614 a hoax?

Using the link in the Microsoft Downloads newsletter
(identified with the date 6/23/05), today (25 Jun 2005) I
just downloaded Ver. 1.0.613 that expires on 31 Dec 2005.

I presume the "614" must have been a false start that now
has settled back to "613."

Hello Jack,
Kindly download again the installer of Windows Antispyware from Microsoft
website. Uninstall Build 613. Install the new installer. Reboot not
necessary but recommended. You should have build 614.
Please report back on results. Thanks!

Just to chime in, I agree with Donna--this is real, and her procedure may be
necessary to see the proper version result.

My experience on 2 XP Home SP2 PCs says you must upgrade 613 to 614 by
running the installer without first saving it; otherwise you just get
613 installed again on top of itself.

Bill, I have found the most accurate and easiest way to
get the latest version is to come into this forum and on
the left side click on the blue and white microsoft.com .

I think I had a bad chicken in my last offering, because I just updated a
..501 build from the download center, and got .613/5729 as the result.

I'm not sure I've actually seen .614 on any machine yet.

Really strange !

Downloaded from default MS page:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

Is it different versions within MS download centers ? then US must have
1.0.613 and Europe 1.0.614 ?
Probably Akamai servers also for this so maybe something is messed up.

Microsoft AntiSpyware Version: 1.0.614
This version expires on: 2005-12-31
Spyware Definition Version: 5729 (2005-06-25 22:43:23)

I've updated 6 machines here in VA and all are 614.
