build 2003160 problem

I'm having a problem with date code 2003160. We have our nmsd.exe updated as of January, so *that* problem is taken care of within our
office.
We're using a contractor who's having typical problems with an earlier build (2003010);
http://www.ptc.com/support/SPR1016697.htm
We've sent him our files (an assembly) in 2003160 and he's getting crashes and sections not regenerating etc. If he updates to the replacement 2003161 build (along with the nmsd.exe patch) then works on the files and saves them within 2003161, will they be messed up? Will they be likely to crash etc if he sends them back to me and I regenerate them in my 2003160 build?
I know the answer is for all of us to upgrade to the latest build, but we can't do that right now for various reasons.

They haven't been sent : back to us yet to see how they open here. Nevertheless there *have* : been problems with different date codes of 2001 and the URL below : details this. : : <smack on the forehead> How could I have missed and not checked out the link you provided!?! But, now that I've read it, the way it looks, the contractor with 161 should not have the same section regeneration problems as before and when they open and save the files, they should be backward compatible within all builds of 2001 (including yours). So, if the contractor had an earlier build, the 161 replacement should fix the crashing problem. Good luck.
