New Bluetooth driver will not update.

I have an E1505 laptop with a Bluetooth mouse.  On the support area of Dell I find that there is a Bluetooth driver that is newer than what I have and it is marked as Urgent to upgrade.  My current driver is Version 5.0.1.2609 dated 5/24/2006.  The new driver is Version 5.0.1.2609,A01  dated 7/19/2006. 

I downloaded and installed the new driver but the Driver Properties still shows that it is Version 5.0.1.2609.   It doesn't seem like the new driver was actually installed.  If you look in the directory for the driver (C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\btwusb.sys) I find that the file date is also not today's date but the original 5/24/2006 date.

Is it possible that the new driver was not really newer than my old one?
