This message will request a fast version check. Now works with all products. Version DLL Digit must be in the range 0-7. (For example, for IX86Ver1.mpq this is 1)

See the BNLS Product Codes document for a list of valid product codes.

** Currently there are no flags defined so this must be set to zero.
