My question is NOT about which is better, that's for another time.
Is there anyway of determining from the package of the boxed version
of an add-on what version it is and if it contains the latest update?
For example I want to buy the PSS 777, boxed version. Now there have
been at least 2 updates, last one announced 18 Aug 06. When do you
think that update would be on the store shelves? I know that you
can always get a free update by download, but I want to get the latest boxed product available. The relationship between the developer and the distributor of the the boxed product is strained to say the least. Each points the finger at the other and says its their responsibillty. I bet they continue to sell all the outdated
products until sold, then sell the newer version. The first update for the PSS 777 came out in April 06. When I asked at the computer store, "how long have you had this on the shelve". They said they did
not know, that's crap. I believe all parties involved know what I'm trying to do, and they want me to buy the outdated product until it's all sold out. My main reason for buying boxed versions-I've been
burned in the past by losing download code/key and then told "sorry charlie". Does anyone have any thoughts on this? If you have the
boxed version of PSS 777, what version did you get? Thanks.
