I have downloaded and am using the version of BOINC from CPDN website which on the website is marked as version 4.02.
The confusion is that when I click on Help, About in the Windows GUI it shows as version 4.03
So which version is it? Is the website incorrect?

The File and version info for the executables (boinc_cli.exe, boinc_gui.exe, boinc.dll and boinc.scr) is and 4.03 (4.3.0.0), although the CPDN model identifier is seemingly 4.02 (I.E. hadsm3_4.02_windows_intelx86). Maybe the website is slightly misleading or maybe I don’t understand the naming conventions?

Carl just made a typo when compiling the Windows client. ;)

that's right, everything should be "4.02" but I put in 03 when I compiled the Windows client. App versions don't have to be identical with BOINC client versions of course, I just thought it would look good!
