Act! 18.1 Update 3 available for download

[ Edited ]

Update 3 for Act! 18.1 is available for download here: http://CDN.updates.swiftpage.act.com/updates/18.1/act1810update3.exe

 

This update contains 15 fixes for our international English and Localized Language products. It applies to all tiers and regions. It does not require a database update so anyone can apply Update 3. To see if you need this update, go to Help > About Act! and check your application version. 

 

This is update requires 18.1. Take advantage of the over 150 defects fixed in 18.1 by going to Help > Act! Notifications to download. Those who install 18.1 will automatically receive the latest Update during install. 

 

18.1 does include a database upgrade so be sure to coordinate with your Act! Administrator before you apply the 18.1 Upgrade. And, can we say this enough? Backup your databases before any upgrade.

Re: Act! 18.1 Update 3 available for download

Bob,
Tried on three systems (Win 8.1, win 10 and Win 2012R2 - All Australian versions of Act!) .... All came back:

---------------------------
ACT!
---------------------------
Hotfix failed to apply.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

Any suggestions?

Re: Act! 18.1 Update 3 available for download

Our QA team didn't report this issue during their update package testing but we'll look into it.

 

I'm told that message may appear sometimes even though the hotfix was applied correctly. I'd check "About Act!" in the Windows client.

 

If not actually applied, then please navigate to your Windows Users Documents folder and attach the two Hotfix log files you find there. One is named merely "Hotfix", the other is "Hotfixyyymddnnnnnnn".

 

Act! Premium? Web?

 

Thanks!

Ahhh ...

Yes, it does seem to have been applied:
Premium Windows: Act! Premium Version 18.1.103.0, Update 3
Premium Web: Act! Premium (Web) Version: 18.1.108.0

Can you please start getting these to match up?

Re: Act! 18.1 Update 3 available for download

Glad to hear that. I believe we'll be upgrading build software soon and that may solve this problem but at the very least, we should update the KB on this message to mention that it may have been applied and to check About Act!.

 

I have a request into Product mgmt to fix the version issue - all I can do. We don't set priority, QA just raises the issue.

 

Thanks, Mike.

BTW: It didn't seem to do the usual .Net optimisation after the Hotfix, and didn't seem to do a database upgrade

Re: Act! 18.1 Update 3 available for download

.Net Optimization depends on the content - if it was aspx or other non-dll content, not much if any will be required. And there's no schema change in Update 3 - just defect fixes.
