Installing Service Pack 1 for Simulation Mechanical 2012

I have re-installed Simulation Mechanical 2012 from the Autodesk CD. Checking Help\About shows:

Build 2012.00.00.0163 04-Mar-2011


I want to install Service Pack 1 per:


The readme file ( dated 6/15/2011 says:

"To verify the installation was successful, start Autodesk Simulation 2012. On the Help menu, select About. If the About box displays: Build 2011.01.01.nnnn, the installation was successful."


However, my CD build is already up to 2012, although the build date is only 04-Mar-2011.


I don't understand the build conflict. Should I install SP1?

I would run the update.  The installer should detect if the update will apply to the installed version of the software on your computer.
