Not that I have time to use it at the moment, but the last few advertising campaigns refer to 14.1 but I see that my version of ViaCAD Pro shows 14.0 and reports no upgrade, so I am a little confused about the current version and upgrades between major versions. Can anyone clarify it for me?

Hi Don,

I noticed the same and posted about it on the Beta thread, however if I look under the Help top menu dropdown, it'll tell you your current version and whether there is an upgrade. As I'm using a WIP (testing a bug fix build) version this is later than 14.1, so I don't get an upgrade message. Not sure if you do, but either way no doubt when they restart after the holidays we'll get a better idea.


PS My About on SharkCAD say 14.1.0 (build 1645) yet the Help>Current Version says v14.4.1 & build 1645

It's confusing. My About dialog says 14.0.0 (Build 1632), and the "Current Version" function displays 14.4.0 as current version on the web, with the same build number. I am told that I'm running the most current version. Is that true?

So what version is build 1632 supposed to be?

Look at the About Box for the accurate build number.

1645 is the most current WIP.

These are service packs and free to anyone with V14.
