Which Content to Install

Hi guys, I have a pretty basic question (well actually I have about 4 basic questions but don't want to look like a complete dork just yet),

My computer crashed last weekend and I had to get a new motherboard and CPU and I boosted the ram a little as well.
I have been reinstalling stuff and the first program I put in was Bryce, but I am a little confused, over the years since I bought my original version of Bryce Pro there were some upgrades to Bryce and Content.
While looking in the folder for the Bryce Pro install file I came across 2 Bryce content files as well as Bryce Lightning files

One was Bryce Content 7.0.0.21 win
the other was Bryce Pro Content 7.0.0.19
Am I right in assuming the one I need to install is the Bryce Pro file even though the version number is smaller?

I will get to the other questions later :)

As always any and all help is greatly appreciated

    Actually you should install both content packages since each has different stuff in it. Also don't forget to grab the bryce content packs that are still free in the store even if they say version 5 and 5.5 they all still work in 7 just fine.

    If I remember right, 7.0.0.19 is the content a couple of brycers contributed for the launch of Bryce 7.0. Content 7.0.0.21 is additional content only for the 7.1 Pro version when we still had PLE, Standard and Pro.

    Bringing this one back up with a question, Does anyone know what size these 2 downloads should be. Please.

    Added to that does anyone know how big the actual Brcye & Pro download should be.

    I am not trusting the downloads I am getting, and My original download is apprenetly on the external that dies.

    Bryce 7.1.0.109 Win32 is 253mb

    BryceContent 7.0.0.21 Win is 670mb

    BryceProContent 7.0.0.19 Win is 17.2mb
