I already have that info thanks, I was asking; since I currently have ACT! by Sage 2010 Version 12.1.181.0, Hot Fix 1 

 

what is the proper procedure to get current. wath I see on the act downlaod site is this :

========================

Now, what am I supposed to do?  Just start selecting the stuff I dont have, download it all  and hope I have done what correctly? do I need them all? Does it matter which I install first? If I do hot fix4 , do I still need to also install hotfix3?

do I need SP1 - Plus HF1 ?

what sequence do I do all  this?

thanks - FSB

I just spoke with Sage Support and here is the scoop on Updating ACT! 2010 std to the proper version.

There were two versions of 2010 . They are 12.0 and 12.1

  The 12.1 version includes service pack1 and you only need to install hotfix3

 

If you have the 2010 12.0, you need to install SP1 +HF1   and  hotfix4

Makes perfect sense, right?

 

I would have guessed incorrectly and also installed hotfix4 and I am assuming I was told correctly by Sage.

This information above should have been on the act website where I found the downloads.

 

Sage expects way too much of their customer users when it comes to installing, Un-installing and maintaining ACT!.

Where is the QA testing?

This issue will be resolved when I am successful with applying updates now. Thanks - FSB
