Ask and answer dialogs change the value of the dialogdata, but I 
understand it was just a test.

I can't think of any other reason it would fail. Dialogdata is just like 
a huge engine-wide global and you can use it however you want. But any 
other dialog or modal can change its value so it isn't dependable except 
immediately after it's set. The sample script you posted should work, 
you were doing it right.

I'm not sure what the goal is of opening a modal to request a version 
number. Is there a reason not to use the message box or an "ask" command?
