How To Interpret the Release version information with regard to Fix Packs

The Release version is given in 5-digit value. Example: 25.0.0.0. The first two digits indicate the product version. Example: A value of '25' indicates version 25 of the product. The last digit indicates the Release version. A value of '0' indicates no Fix Pack has been applied; a value of '1' indicates Fix Pack 1 of the product version has been applied; a value of '2' indicates Fix Pack 2 has been applied. This pattern repeats for any Fix Pack that has been applied.
NOTE: The above applies only to the traditional licensed (authorization code) versions or SPSS Software.
