Does this mean that the _same version_ of UV could service either laptop or
desktop systems ? (Depending on the hardware, as you indicated.) I ask
because this utility was often listed as "laptop UltraVision." Also, I
it was a DOS util., which probably suggests it would work under OS/2, and the

two versions of Win you mentioned, but not necessarily later versions of Win.
