  • It is recommended that the install of Interim Release 7.4.1 occur via the office network, as opposed to a remote connection.
  • Contact your County Support Staff to confirm that the correct version has been delivered to the workstation.
  • Users that are logged onto the system when the release arrives will not be using the new code at their workstation.
  • Like major releases, Interim Release 7.4.1 will be using a full installation package.  There is no outage.
