The Versions page can be accessed by typing http://[IP_ADDRESS]:24267/vray-versions or from the V-Ray Swarm Menu. There, the uploaded V-Ray Standalone builds are displayed under Available V-Ray versions. There can be more than one, depending on the V-Ray builds currently installed and used for rendering within 3D applications.  If the Workstation needs a V-Ray build different from the one/s the machine already has, it will be uploaded and started for rendering the job. V-Ray Swarm will upload the needed builds automatically and will ensure that all the render nodes use the same V-Ray build while rendering a job.

The builds can be deleted manually by clicking on the trash icon next to the V-Ray build. Note that V-Ray should be disabled before the deletion.

This feature is used and useful only for debugging, to run a specific version of V-Ray standalone on the specified machine. When used from Revit/Rhino/SketchUp V-Ray Swarm still starts the proper V-Ray Standalone version automatically.
