Reason 6.5.2 build

Hi All,
I'm new to Reason and was wondering how I could tell if the downloaded R6 update is later than what I just installed from the box disk.
From disk and current install details are, 6.5 Build 2,615.

Is the update I downloaded a later build?
I ask because it is a bit of a pain having to un-install the origonal to update if it isn't a significant update.

Thanks and best regards to all from Aus.

Upon opening Reason, a squarish Reason window will flash, on the upper left, it will show, Reason 6.5.2, that's the indicator that you have the latest version.

Hi and thanks for your reply.
Upon opening, I see 6.5 Build 2,615 not 6.5.2.
Am I up to date?

Download R6.5.2 here: directly under the big Reason green logo. It’s a 3.3+ GB file because it includes the FSB/Ork.

OK, will do thanks.
I'm assuming that the download is a later release.
I know I may be repeating myself, but no one actually said that the download was later than I already have installed.
New disk just purchased 2 days ago.

Thanks again.

Although you only bought the disc a few days ago, it would probably have been authored at least a couple of months ago and 6.5.2 was only released a few weeks ago. I picked up a 6.5 upgrade disc for my son, and I believe that was the original 6.5 release, so he would probably download the update.

Essentially, 6.5.2 is a bug fix release, and there should be a fix list somewhere.

So: Simple answer, yes, it is a later version than you have on the disc.
