Pantones are different

    Hi everyone, I have an issue which has gone unresolved for some time so would really appreciate a fresh set of eyes.
    I have a pantone reference which is part of our company logo Pantone Warm Red CVU. Its kind of orange.
    The issue I have is that I have 2 files with this pantone displayed however they show as 2 different shades. So with the eyedropper tool they both report Pantone Warm Red CVU. Converting to RGB one gives 241,93,47 and the other 239,62,35 - so a noticeable difference, well to me anyway.
    I have checked every setting and both files seem identical; is there somwhere where I can place these 2 files for one of you kind souls to give your opinion of why this is happening?
    Appreciate any help.

    What software are you using? I know when converting an RGB file in Photoshop can be affected by the colour profiles set up in the colour settings.
