I see now that this is a latent bug. 2.46 just installed but the Programs list in Ctrl Panel did not update to reflect version or install date. Scary.

DisplayName DisplayVersion Publisher InstallDate
----------- -------------- --------- -----------
SeaMonkey 2.25 (x86 en-US) 2.25 Mozilla 4-29-2014

Windows 7x64

Auto update and manual (offline) update using full installer work correct at my PCs. It must be something with your OS. Did you used some unofficial SM versions prior official 2.46 release?

Every time I have seen something like this the Windows registry had some problems in it. Might also be an Antivirus program interfering. Uninstall it and delete the Seamonkey directory from your 'program files (x86)' The do a reboot and reinstall it. Profile data will not be removed by a delete/reinstall but back up your Mozilla dir under Appdata\Roaming (Enter %APPDATA% in Explorer to find it).

I did as FRG suggested. Programs now has the correct app info. Now we'll have to see if it updates correctly after the next SM update... (Which I hope is soon; with bug fixes!)

Thanks

BTW, I've used only public releases from SM (via auto-update).
