Installer Critical Update
Critical Update: The InstallAware software used to create the installers for our products has been updated to resolve a recently identified critical DLL preloading vulnerability. As a copy of the installer remains on the machine for maintenance, update, removal, and repair tasks, the risk is ongoing until the system is updated with the fixed installer.
The installer has also been improved to correctly handle changes to build numbers when service packs are installed.
When installing on a system with an existing installation of Batch Posting Service Toolkit, you will receive a warning that the server components are about to be updated and that once the server is updated, all workstations will have to be updated to match the same build.
You can respond No to this dialog, but that will deactivate Batch Posting Service Toolkit on the current workstation until next login or company switch when you will be asked again to update.
When communicating with the Registration Server, a please wait dialog is displayed so you understand why there might be a pause from the system.
For a detailed change log, look at the PostServ.txt file which is also installed with Batch Posting Service Toolkit into the Microsoft Dynamics GP application folder. To see the updated documentation, look at the user guide which is also installed with the product.
