    Is this worth taking a look at again?

    Thanks, I'll revert 'incompatible' status so it becomes visible in the queue again to investigate.

    It appears that Zotero fixed their versioning!

    The installed version is extractable from this config file:

    %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Zotero\application.ini


    Alternatively, for this and other such software that does not use proper Windows binary versioning, using a SHA256 hash on the primary (or most recently updated) .exe or .dll should always work.

    This is what I have to do for many specialized software packages used in higher education, as proper binary versioning for Windows software is appearing to be a lost skill. (Another example would be QGIS.)

    The binary for the application doesn't provide a valid file version we can use to perform detection's. See below for example this is for the version 5.0.83, but you can see they don't update the binaries properly.
