  • Hi,

    the actual build number appears to be 37563. Which is the right one?

    with best regards

    Jens

  • The fobs in the CU versions, are they compiled with the CU version build or with standard NAV build? It is a bit confusing when the developer klient doesn't warn me when I'm trying to import a newer build version.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but the text-"fobs" doesn't contain any build code so these are safe to import in version were the FinSQL.exe is of a lower build version then the "text build".

    But if the fobs are compiled in the same CU version as it is it could be a problem to import them into lower exe builds?

  • Hi all,

    Sorry for the confusion, but the correct build number is indeed 37563. The announcement has been updated accordingly.

  • @Capone: Everything we release in a CU is compiled and tested together. I am not sure what you mean by "CU version build" or "standard NAV build", in my world there is no difference between these two.

  • Hi Martin,

    ... but there are :) The question is: Can you import objects compiled with a higher build no. into a system that has a lower build no. with no adverse effects? I know that the opposite isn't always true. I had quite a hard time getting a NAV2013 system that was running on NAV2013r2 binaries updated to newer (NAV2013) objects. Even importing new tables fail when there are dependencies taht can't be resolved at import time. Reference: www.mibuso.com/.../viewtopic.php

    with best regards

    Jens

  • @Martin

    Back in the "old days" it was very common to do a technical upgrade to a newer version or build. The objects could be in version/build X but the client was in version/build Y.

    There has always been issues when you try to import fobs (not text) from a newer to an older build version. This problem doesn't happen with text files.

    My first question: The released fob files in the CU (Cumulative Update) are they compiled with the same build number or are they compiled with a client that has the same build no as the first released version of 2013 R2.

    If it is the later it would be easier to upgrade the application without having to upgrade the platform as well.

  • I just applied the update to current installation and none of the build numbers have been updated. Not on the NST and not in the clients.

    Not so strange that the build number doesn't change on the client since there is no new client exe file in the RTC folder.

    However if reinstall the entire installation it gets the correct build nos.

  • Czech version is included? I do not see it in download list... ???

  • @Capone: files in the CU is tested and compiled together (same build number). So nothing in a CU is compiled on an earlier version.

  • Aren´t there some files missing in the RTC folder? I cannot find NavModelTools.ps1 and the related Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Model files there.

    The files can however be found in the folder \Dynamics.71.DK.1517910.DVD.zip\RoleTailoredClient\program files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\71\RoleTailored Client.

    As this should be a cummulative update, I would expect the files to be present in the RTC folder.

  • @Allan Bangsbro, you might benefit from reading this kb: mbs2.microsoft.com/.../kbdisplay.aspx. Not all files are included in the folders for manual patching. Always use the installer if you want to make sure to get all the files and if you do not want to patch manually.

    Best regards Martin

  • @Martin Nielander. Thank you, I have seen that document. It´s for NAV 2013, not NAV 2013 R2. There are differences in the folders (for example Help server), so I think an updated "how-to" would be appropriate.

    Did you download CU10 for NAV 2013 R2 and check the folders i mentioned? The "how-to" you linked to (and for this folder it should be the same as with R2) mentions:

    Copy the files in the RTC folder from the files that you downloaded.

    Paste the files into the Microsoft Dynamics NAV RoleTailored client installation directory.

    My point is that there are files missing in the RTC folder compared to the files in the folder "RoleTailored Client" on the complete DVD (which is included in the download as zip-file).

  • Can anyone tell, currently we are using Navision version 4 SP3 with SQL 2005 and we want to upgrade to Navision 5 SP1 Update 2. Can we use the same license? Can it support the SQL version I have mentioned?

  • @Roy Before even trying to upgrade to 5 SP1 you should have the demo version installed. It's gonna take you 10 seconds to test whether the 4 license works in 5.

    You should actually use version 5 sp1 update 2.26!

    Regarding the SQL Server. Yes it works always downwards, meainng if it works on version 4 its also gonna work on 5, but you should consider running on a newer version of SQL to get better performance. Read the requirements documents on the CD and check the updated informations on partnersource or customersource.
