Sage last night provided an update to Sage 100 ERP v4.5 in the form of Sage 100 ERP v4.5 product update 4. A quick glance through the “What’s Fixed” list shows a few bug fixes but nothing that seems major.
IMPORTANT NOTE – JULY 6, 2012: When the original product update 4 was released some users reported an issue when migrating data (which is a different process than converting) from versions prior to 4.5. Sage quickly fixed this issue and replaced the original product update 4 download with a new version. So if you’d previously downloaded the update but have not yet applied it – we recommend that you discard the old product update 4 and re-download.
If you’re not experiencing a problem that this update say’s is now fixed – we recommend following the “If it isn’t broken don’t fix it” theory of installing patches.
However if you are experiencing an issue the product update claims to solve – please be sure to talk with your Sage partner about whether it’s safe to implement this update. If you have custom enhancements or integrations to your Sage 100 ERP it’s best to verify compatibility BEFORE installing any upgrades or product updates.
The following is a list of enhancements and corrections that have been incorporated for Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 version 4.50 in this Product Update. Product Updates are cumulative, containing all program corrections found in prior updates. Product Update 188.8.131.52 also contains program corrections that were included in 184.108.40.206 – 220.127.116.11. These are also listed below for reference. The numbering scheme has been changed for 4.50 Product Updates. The third segment represents the Product Update number. This change was done to accommodate future enhancements.
After installing this Product Update, WKsUpdate 90.exe or WKsUpdate 200.exe needs to be run on each MAS Workstation. This file is located in the ..\mas90\WkSetup directory on the MAS Server.
(WKsUpdate should also be run anytime WkSetup.exe is run on a MAS Workstation.)
