How Do I Determine Which Version of the Patch I Am Using?

When you downloaded the SR-1 Patch to the hard disk on your computer, you can determine the version of the SR-1 Patch you are running by viewing the date of the file. If you ran Setup from the Web site, you cannot correctly determine the version. Note that downloading, and then running the patch is the recommended method of using the patch.

Earlier versions of the patch have a file date of 7/11/97. The current patch has a file date of 8/21/97. If you saved the SR-1 Patch from the Web to your hard disk, this file is located where you saved it. If you ran the patch from the SR-1 Patch CD, locate the file on the CD.
