[New-bugs-announce] [issue31103] Windows Installer Product Version 3.6.2150.0 Offset By 0.0.150.0

New submission from Markus Kramer:
Each Windows installation has a “product version”.
The Windows installer python-3.6.2.exe has product version "3.6.2150.0" (accessible with context menu / Properties / Details).
This causes at least 2 problems:
- Automated software inventory relies on product version and therefore does not detect version 3.6.2
- Microsoft installation guidelines require the first three fields to be smaller than 256.
Proposed alternatives for the value of product version:
- "18.104.22.168" to indicate the final release build.
- "22.214.171.124" to indicate the build number. The build number may be higher than 256, but this is unusual for a final release.
This is a sub-problem of http://bugs.python.org/issue31077
