V3 CD's shipped from February 2004 onwards

The Hampshire Burial Index (HCD0001) on CD was shipped at Version 3 from February 2004. No updates have been identified since that time.

V1 and V2 CD's shipped prior to February 2004

Upgrades available to V2.0.9

Background to the Upgrade

The Hampshire Burial Index (HCD0001) on CD was shipped at Version 1.0.0. Although pre-release testing had found many areas for improvement and errors that were corrected, unfortunately a problem with the "Search by Parish" facility was not spotted. This means that due to the indexing method used, when certain parishes are selected, the data for an alternative parish is displayed. This software fault has made an upgrade necessary.

Note: Access table outputs and the full functionality of the "Search for Individual" are not affected by this problem.
