Having an incorrect version of NSD.exe on a server can be a nightmare when trying to troubleshoot server crash issues.  Could the server process at start up check to see if the correct NSD version is available based on the version of the server code and display a warning if it is an older version.

How can this situation occur? Installing a server version installs a current version of NSD as does updating. You can manually install newer versions of NSD, but can older versions be on your server without manual intervention?

@1 NSD updates were released between point releases up till 8.5 (iirc). They patched and repaired it just like SPRs were applied as hotfixes, CCHs, fix packs, etc.

For now, it's not an issue, but could return if Lotus provides for in-between point release updates for NSD.
