When you look at the program file's "Properties", the upgrade clearly states "Patch v1.4": Microsoft originally released MSTS in a boxed version.
Sometime after the release of v1.4, the box was replaced by a 2-CD Amaray-style DVD case with either the BNSF Dash 9 or the Flying Scotsman on the cover, depending on the market into which it was sold.

This enabled the early purchasers of MSTS to upgrade their game to the last released version of MSTS.
