    Why would Pantone colors vary from one illustrator program to another?

      When I convert a Pantone color to CMYK values, I get one set of values. When a client converted the same Pantone color to CMYK in her illustrator program, she got different CMYK values. What would cause this? Shouldn't the values be the same for both of us? She sent me a screen shot of how she got the values, and it was exactly the same as what I did. The original Pantone color was a CVC, which Pantone does not make anymore. Would this make any difference? We both were converting the same Pantone CVC color. Thanks for any help!
