Yes we know that one, but if you read the first post, I said that you can upgrade v7077 to 7100 without editing the .ini file.

Sorry if I was not clear.

I'd be interested in comparing a "change log" of the two
I'm thinking that may be the case because the cversion.ini in 7100 shows:
MinClient=7077.0
MinServer=7000.0

Maybe 7077 is/was the Escrow Build??

yes noticed this one before installing. I think it does prove that 7077 was firstvon the RC tree rather than the rest being Beta's.
