Just downloaded LanMan98, V2.08 from PlingStore. The info still says
its version 2.05. Only obvious difference is the program sprite which
is slightly different from the original. What about having 2.05 (2.08)
or something similar in the Info... Version box.

Mine says quite clearly 2.08 (16 Feb 2021). That is the stand alone
version.

That may well be something to do with it. The only other version I can
find in the zip file is the OmniPlugin version which doesn't appear to
do anything - perhaps because I don't really know what I'm supposed to
do with it.

I use the Omni version - and that also says v2.08.
The ReadMe document in the full 2.08 zip includes how to install both
with and without OmniClient.

Where are you seeing an Info box with v2.05 in?
What does *Help LanMan98 show?

I too downloaded the !Store version and it says 2.08. Are you sure you're
not running the previous version from a different location?

It's fixed - sorry to waste your time guys.
I loaded the old V2.05 program to check all was working. I 'Quit' it
from Tasks but forgot that it remains active. I should have rebooted the
machine which I have subsequently done and all is well - I have 2.08
version now loaded.

I must read up how to do this.
