May I ask what is the difference in the following sentences:
(1) I thank you for your friendship and best wishes for continued success.
(2) I thank you for your friendship and best wishes for continuous success.
Thank you.

Welcome, albertino. :hi:

(1) I thank you for your friendship and best wishes for continued success. :tick:

(2) I thank you for your friendship and best wishes for continuous success. :cross:


Note,
a continuous sheet of ice; a continuous flow of water. Source
Continue, endure, persist, persevere, last, remain imply
existing uninterruptedly for an appreciable length of time. Source


Does that help?
