This message requests the latest version byte for a given product.
The version byte is sent to Battle.net in SID_AUTH_INFO (0x50).
See the BNLS Product Codes document for a list of valid product codes.
For those who do not use the old BNLS, and instead use JBLS/VBLS or something equalivant, you will probably want to know that there are more ID's than just those.
0x09: Diablo Retail
0x0A: Diablo Shareware
0x0B: Starcraft Shareware
When I do not have a product that matches any of those, I just use 0x00, but you probably will not get a matching VerByte if you do.
I convinced Ribose to add W3DM to his BNLS# server as 0x0C.
