There are important differences related to influence diagrams between HUGIN 6.9 and HUGIN 7.x.

In HUGIN 7.0 we introduced "LIMIDs" (Lauritzen & Nilsson'01). The support for LIMIDs changes the semantics of the information arcs in the diagram and the solution algorithm.

In the traditional influence diagram (HUGIN 6.9) we assume the decision maker to be non-forgetting and use the Jensen, Jensen & Dittmer (94) algorithm to solve the diagram. This implies that the decision maker is assumed to recall all past observations and decisions. By this assumption some information arcs are assumed present. E.g., for the last decision all observations prior to the first decision are assumed observed due to not-forgetting. The diagram is solved by solving for each decision in reverse time ordering.

In the LIMID, all information arcs should be explicitly drawn in the diagram. There is no assumption about perfect recall (non-forgetting). Thus, an information arc from node X into the first decision does not imply that we assume an information arc from node X into any later decision to be implicitly present. Hence, we may model that the decision maker is forgetful.

Also, the solution algorithm is changed. The solution algorithm for LIMIDs is Single Policy Updating where we iteratively solve for each decision (in reverse time order, if an ordering is present). The user has to press the "SPU" button in the toolbar to run Single Policy Updating after compiling the network in order compute updated decision policies.

To change your model into a traditional influence diagram (if you want), you will have to add information arcs to the diagram.
