Old school sorry, Flash MX to 7.2

Hello,
Been using Flash MX for the last year, company dosnt support 8 yet.
They just moved to 7.2 and I need to update my version so I can swap work.
I downloaded the update to jump to 7.2, but when I install it is say it cannot find the program/
I guess some home my version 6.0 works with 7.0

"Macromedia Flash MX 2004 is not found on your system

You must install Macromedia Flash MX 2004 before running the update"

Now it appears I have Flash MX, but some how I think it is version 6.,
So I guess my real question is do I need to purchase and version of 7 before jumping to 7.2,
or is there and updater to go from Flash MX 6.0 to 7.0

Thanks

It's a confusing set of versions, but Flash MX is often considered Flash 6.0, tho technically Flash 6 is a player only version name (there is no Flash IDE version 6, it's MX) and it's the same with version 7 which is actually called MX2004 (the year it came out) so Flash MX and Flash MX2004 are not the same version. So for your purposes, if you have Flash MX you could assume that you could call it Flash 6, so then it should seem obvious that you should not be able to install the 7.2 update from V6 without first purchasing the V7 upgrade.

I can't imagine what a company could use as an excuse for not supporting V8. It's rather pointless to purchase a 2 year old upgrade.
