    Hi!nope don't know, but you should not care at all which version is... you only need the license key.You will always find the latest installer (and old ones)at the ZA web site.Cheers,Fax

    Thanks very much
    for your reply, fax.
    I would prefer to use the CD in the box if it's the latest XP version (7.0.462.000--released November 20, 2007) because I have a dial-up accelerator that I've read could cause problems with the download (although I've never had a known problem with that before).
    I can turn the accelerator off, but then sometimes it won't download anything at all!
    Does anyone know for sure which version comes on the CD in the ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite 2008 box?
    Thanks!

    Tried to read the CD in the drive without executing the installer and see what the installer show for the version number? Or possible for information? Never used the CD, always downloaded so I never tried this.
    Could you get a friend or family member to download the installer for you or maybe download it at work ?

    As always, thanks Oldsod.
    The installer doesn't show a version number.
    There are separate links on the install screen
    for both Vista and XP to check for updates.
    If there are no updates, then you're instructed to install from the CD.
    There is a Readme file on the CD (dated May 7, 2007), only for version 7.1, which I understand is Vista-only.
    I was hoping that someone out there has recently used the ZoneAlarm Internet Security 2008 CD to install on their XP machine, so I could find out from them what XP version is on the CD.
    I purchased the boxed ZASS about a week ago.
    I called Customer Support, but they were no help.
    The only thing they said was that the version for Vista is not on the CD.
    I'm not even sure that's correct because it looks like it's on there to me.
    But not the newest release for Vista, I'm sure, since that was just released week before last.
    If anyone knows the answer, please let me know.
    Thanks to all!

    Thanks to George and all the other Gurus.
    I explored the ZASS 2008 installation CD and found that the install files are dated 6-26-07, so that would not include the latest update for XP, which was released in November 2007.
    I'll download the latest version, 7.0.462.000, directly from ZoneLab's website.
    Hopefully, the uninstall (with /clean and /rmlicense switches) and the reinstall will go without a hitch and the new license key will &quot;take&quot;.
    Wish me luck....
