Do I have the correct version?

About 4-6 weeks ago, I was in a local builder's supply, and there was
this nice Autodesk cardboard kiosk with all kinds of Planix software
packages, and it included the Quick CAD package in a box noted as
"Millennium Edition".

A coworker and I need to create a custom wiring diagram for an airplane
we've restored, and I thought this was the perfect solution, so we each
bought a copy. (As an aside, it turns out we have consecutive serial
numbers!!! ) I have registered my copy electronically, but I
don't know about my friend.

I just discovered this newsgroup last Sunday, and in reading the
previous messages (I haven't gotten the all read yet), there seems to
have been some confusion as to whether some people received the correct
version, regarding version 6 or version 7. Apparently there were some
version 6 programs shipped in version 7 packaging.

So my first question is, is version 6 the millennium edition or not? It
would appear from the newsgroup postings I've managed to get read that
version 7 was released sometime late last year. I know that I was
certainly expecting to get the latest version when I purchased the
software, especially when it was in an Autodesk kiosk.

FWIW, I think the kiosk display of Planix software in the building
supply store was a good idea. With all the mega-mergers of retailers
going on, it's getting harder and harder to find places to actually look
at a sample of what you want to buy when it comes to computer software.
I personally don't like this trend, even if the prices are lower because
it also results in my choices of products being fewer.

Actually Ken, both are Millennium editions but version 7 normally has a
large 7 on it and version 6 did not. Take a look at Help>About AutoSketch
and it should tell you exactly which version you have.

Thanks, Keith. I knew I had version 6 from the help menu, I just wasn't
sure if this was a shipping error on Autodesk's behalf or not.

The building supply chain must have gotten a deal on outdated
packages! LOL
