Scope Problem on Standalones

More confusion! The version of RunRev I am using says 2.6.1 build 152 
in the About RunTime Revolution box, but the version of the 
application is Revolution in the finder Get Info box.

How to tell which one is right and hard to know why they are different.

Is this the correct version?

Thanks a lot
