Include Battle.Net version number for winget compatibility

Microsoft just released their new package manager for Windows, called “winget”. While trying it out, I noticed it always offered an update for Battle.Net, even though I’m already on the latest version. This is because Battle.Net doesn’t set its version number in the Windows “Add/Remove Program” entry (the list of programs where you can uninstall them from).
Because of this, winget doesn’t actually know which Battle.Net version is installed, displays Unknown version and always offers a update when running winget upgrade.

Could the devs please implement this tiny change so it plays nice with winget?


I agree it’s very annoying to have update every time

It seems like a simple fix that should have been done correctly in the first place


Yes, please update the client and add the version number! I have the same issue, winget will always display an update is available!
It shows always:
Battle.Net Blizzard.BattleNet Unknown winget


Same problem here. It is very annoying to have this recurring problem, simply because the version number is unknown.
A quick fix would be much appreciated! :pray:
Thank you!

Like to add another +1 to this. I am already using winget on a daily basis and would love to see Battle.Net working with winget!


any update on this issue?
