Q: How do I know what version of MainBoss I am running?

A: Select Help —> About in the MainBoss menu bar. MainBoss displays a screen which provides information about the software.

A Windows Example

The version number is clearly stated in this screen. The screen also contains a line beginning with the words Messages Version. This indicates which custom message files are currently being used. In the example above, you see the numbers (0409/0000/0000).

  1. The first number shows your user language setting. This is taken from your Windows Regional Options setting or from the /langid option (if any) on the MainBoss command line.
  2. The second number is the default language ID. This indicates what message file is actually being used. For example, if this number is 0000, it indicates that you are using message file msg0000.txt.
  3. The third number is the override file, if any. For example, if you are using override file ovr0001.txt, the third number shown will be 0001.

For more information about custom text files, see Custom Text Settings.

If you forget your administrator password and call MainBoss support for help, you will be asked to give the database serial number that appears in the Serial # line.
