CWS/CMS Users please note:

  • It is strongly recommended that the user log off the application each night to insure that they are working with the latest version of the application.
  • It is recommended that the install of Interim Release 7.5.1 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 7.5.1 will be using a full installation package.  There is no outage.
