    Hi,

    the docs say that GetC4DVersion will return a 4 digits encoded version number. However, in 11.532 it returns a 5 digits number (11532). When did this change exactly? If somebody uses a four digit check for serial generation for example and doesn´t know that this changed then this can become quite serious as checking for < 1100 for example will never be true which should especially affect license server serialisation. Could you tell me with which version this changed?

    Thank you

    I get all numbers checking from 10.503 and up (have no earlier installed)
    The COFFEE doc says nothing about 4 digits, only that the return is integer.

    Cheers

    Howdy,

    I noticed that it changed with R10, and I used a line like this:

    if(GetC4DVersion() > 9999)
    

    ... to check for R10 compatibility.

    Adios,
    Cactus Dan

    As Cactus said it changed with Cinema 4D R10. The returned value is a number that increases with every version so a check should be always safe.
