Default measure numbering

I have a question on the numbering of measures on sheet music.
BeethoVen Piano Trio Trio Op1. No.1

I have played this music with people with other scores and found there is a
discrepancy in measure numbers.
example) At the first movement on the top measure of page 8 of piano part,
it is numbered as 105, where as other scores was printed as 104. Measure 104 and 105 are numbered as 1, 2 respectively. Measure 1 is to be played the first time and go back to repeat. 2nd time around, measure 2 is to be played.

For a repetition measures printed in two different measures,
how do you number them, repeat the same measure or increment numbers ?

I just wondered how the rule is for virtual sheet music.
I'd appreciate if you could let me know.

Hello and thank you for your post.

Well, usually we count them as two different measures. Anacrusis bars are usually NOT numbered, but in some of our editions are considered as regular bars and so counted.

Please, let me know if you have any further questions.
