Question about updates / service packs installation.

Running autocad 2012 on win 7 professional.

The CD installed just fine, and I believe I put on one of the fixes (not 100% sure about the update).  Did this back in July.


Whenever I currently start autocad,  an "autodesk exchange" window opens, and on the right side in a box it says regarding Product Updates and Service Packs : An update or service pack is available.


I could swear that about 2-3 weeks ago the Autodesk Exchange window was saying something like "my software is up to date" (or "current"). 


As such, I have installed Service Pack 1 for Autocad 2012, and that update completed successfully and I restarted windows.  However, it still says in the Autodesk Exchange window "an update or service pack is available".


3 Part question:

- Am I mis-remembering, or prior to Service Pack 1, did this window used to say your software was up to date?

- If so, is there some patch  that I need to apply to get it to say "your software is up to date" again?

- How do you know which updates / service packs you have applied to your product ?

(mine is "product version: F.107.0.0, AutoCAD 2012 - English SP1"  (obviously SP1 means Service Pack 1, but what about updates or fixes???)


Thank you, and apologies in advance, as I'm a newbie to Autocad.
