Checking dll versions is not good! That's why we have an installer to do
it for us ;-) I think this could lead to more email from confused users.
Now they avoid a reboot, but will it work?

I have only installed one nightly with the new scheme, and I did not get
a new entry, but maybe I would if installed several?

Suggestion, slightly less horrible this time:

Always keep the same product ID to avoid multiple records in Add/Remove.
Combine parts of the version number by using a x100 on one part. becomes

It is reasonably obvious what this is supposed to represent. It will
only fail if there are > 99 bug fix releases (3rd digit) between feature
releases (2nd digit), and the version number always increments.
