Just make sure that the ceaXXX.ini files installed into the windows directory 
for each version are the same (there really shouldn't be much difference in 
the files) or you should write a simple batch file to copy each version's ini 
files before you launch session manager and CEA apps.  A batch file could be 
written to do overwrite ini files and then launch bpcssm.exe.  

I successfully loaded and used v6.0.02 and v6.0.04 with the same (v6.0.04) 
ini files for many months about a year ago.  Take the time to make sure the 
files are compatible, though.  I'm a consultant and was testing and working 
on many different systems during this time - the definition of "successfully" 
is different for production systems.

I think you mentioned that you haven't been able to make it work.  What 
problems have you encountered?
