Now that's interesting to know! I just used IDA to patch the version on my machine, but I didn't realise it was different for Threadripper. That might explain why it didn't work for me.
Took me a while to figure out as well. I wouldn't have expected it.
But check the binary version - I'm almost 100% that's is 1.x and not 2.2 like the package version.
Yes, it seems like Threadripper CPUs gets an old version installed. I've confirmed it works on v126.96.36.1993 that I just downloaded and installed for non TR.

You're in luck. Someone submitted a patch for Threadripper. New v1.1 release at GitHub - klauspost/ryzen-master-vbs-patch: AMD Ryzen Master VBS patcher
I have this exact same problem with version 188.8.131.521 but Ryzen Master installed just fine and refuses to launch. All it requires is a quick fix in a hex editor but AMD doesn't seem to be bothered enough to fix this issue: AMD Ryzen Master VBS Fix
