Why does S.I. misidentify programs?

Why can't SI differentiate between programs like Hexagon 2.5 and Hexagon 5.29? The first is a 3D modeling program and the second is a game.

S.I. Client identifies applications based on their name and their entries in registry database of your computer. There is likely a possibility that it cannot list the application twice and so it lists the same application with different version. If you are the developer or you want to contribute, you can go to the entry page from Software Informer and use the Suggest a Correction button and provide the right data for the software.

I only have Hexagon 2.5, the 3D modeling program, installed on my computer. The only games on it, are those that came with Windows.

As far as suggesting a correction goes, SI will still see the name "Hexagon" and offer up Hexagon 5.29 as an update to Hexagon 2.5.
