New 188.8.131.52 Version of Bridge is available for download
IMPORTANT CHANGES - This update offers the latest enhancements to Bridge’s underlying database engine
WARNING: CLIENT/SERVER USERS: Upgrading to Bridge version 4 requires a database conversion.
If you have multiple users sharing a common database (Client/Server configuration), the upgrade must be coordinated carefully.
DO NOT INSTALL BRIDGE VERSION 4 UNTIL YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE DATABASE CONVERSION PROCESS.
Please have your network administrator read the instructions
HERE before upgrading.
Customers who are current on the Maintenance Agreement for their Client/Server license will receive an email with their
new Client/Server license files. If your Client/Server Maintenance Agreement has expired,
you will not be able to upgrade Bridge or your Client/Server software from this point on.
For more information and to update your maintenance, contact your Sage representative.
Standalone installations (not using Client/Server): Simply update Bridge to Version 4. Bridge will notify you at startup that a database conversion is required and then automatically perform the conversion process.
