hi, I am new to LW and am enjoying the huge learning curve. I recently installed the new patch (8.2.1) but I am not sure if it has installed. Is there a way to tell? What has left me unsure is the window name on modeller still says 8.2. Should it now say 8.2.1?

Per NewTek's release announcement page, the version number and build number will NOT change with the 8.2.1 update.

The update had to do with plugins only. Therefore the version didn't change, i.e., the applications didn't change. It included about a dozen plugins e.g. bonetools.p et.al.

Read the release news about the update, and try some of the stuff they say was fixed. Or you could just look at the files it said was replaced and see if they are dataed sometime after the 8.2 release.
