Today I have started preparing for our upgrade.
Thankfully its very easy to experiment because our OLF server is Virtual, and i have a clone of the production server to play with.
First issue I have run into is that our verion of OLF appears to be build 4.228 hile 4.229 is required to update.
The Installation guide recommends to either live-update, OR to download the 3 upates needed from the Download center.
Problem1: The Live update doesnt do anything. It thinks there is nothing to update perhaps? I know the live update work ok because we use it to install the certificate updates, etc.Compatibility with older versions
Online Filing version 4.00 can be upgraded from builds 4.229 to version 5.00. If you have a still older version installed (build 4.228, for instance) and you want to continue using its data, you must first upgrade to the last build of version 4.00.
You can either use Live Update in Server Manager or manually install the following V4 updates (available from the Download center on the Online Services website (http://www.epoline.org)) in this order:
1. 1 July 2008 PCT update (ibptch4010_002.exe, 06-11-2008)
2. 1 January 2009 updates (epptch4009_007.exe, 22-12-2008)
3. Fee reform 1 April 2009 and EP(Oppo) plug-in (epptch4023.exe, 09-04-2009)
The updates from 1 July 2009 on are included in Version 5.0 and do not need to be installed before upgrading.
Problem2: I cannot find any of the mentioned updates on the download center. Only OLF 5.00 downloads appear to be available (3). I cannot find a link to the older downloads for version 4 anywhere. Am I blind?
