I am a little hesitate to let the team upgrade the laptop they program with.  I tried to upgrade my laptop.  The installation completed without any issue.   However, I could not figure out how I can tell for sure that I am now on version 2.1.   I tried Help ->About LEGO NXT MINDSTORM NXT EDU..., but could not find any version number.   Does anyone know how to tell the version number?   

Did anyone encounter any problem running existing programs after the upgrade?

Many thanks for your help,

Jane Jiang

Subject: Re: [VADCFLL-L] Firmware and software


The most recent firmware version is 1.31. There are some notes at the Lego firmware download site (http://mindstorms.lego.com/en-us/support/files/firmware.aspx#Patches) that explain the changes that were made from the previous version. 

The latest version of the Mindstorms NXT software is 2.1. If you
    have version 2.0, you can upgrade to version 2.1 by using the patch
    available on the vadcfll.org website (under Coaching Resources). If you have an older (1.x) version, you can purchase the newer software from Lego.
