Hi Sudheer,

It depends mainly on what it is you want to look at. You cannot
exclude though, that the version has an effect on your results.
Therefore you either have to do all simulations using the same
version, or you have to randomize the versions over the simulations. I
do hope that you meant to do like five simulations per system?
Otherwise you won't have statistics anyway and are likely to obtain
useless results whatsoever :) Okay, not that black and white, but
still, you have to be a bit careful when trying do do proper
comparisons. Actually, if you do like six simulations per system and
have three of each set with one version and three with the other, you
could even test for the effect of the program :p
