Ordered Shake 4.1, box says Shake 4 - do I open it?

This may be a non-issue, but fearing that I may not be able to return the box after I open it, I want to make sure I got the right thing. I ordered Shake 4.1, which is what the packaging slip says. The shrink-wrapped box, though, just says Shake 4.

The explanation may very well be that 4.1 is just the universal binary of an otherwise identical version 4, and that the 4.1 software media is actually inside the box.

Can anyone who recently purchased Shake confirm this?

Thanks,
Martin

Yeah, the box has no indication of 4.1
Just says Shake 4 on the front.

If you look at the bottom there should be a little sticker with the serial number and barcode (not the UPC printed on the box).
The sticker should say "SHAKE 4.1 RETAIL" in small print under the serial no.

Nick,

I found the sticker - thanks a lot! (I guess I should have looked more carefully before asking).

Now, off to installing the software and experimenting with it... :-)
