Helen,

It sure would be great to have a utility, or an AppleScript, or an Accordance feature which would review all MY module versions and compare to the most current module versions available. It could provide me a list of what to order or update. This program could read a master version list from the Accordance website. It would save me time, provide fewer tech incidents like this thread, and increase income for you all. Most of us would like to keep our tools current.

I agree it is needed, haven't worked out how to do it effectively.

That's a great idea. It would be pretty easy to write an applet that recursively searched a folder, or even read module file locations from preferences, and then compared to a list kept available on the server.
