The latest AMS program upgrade is available from Avdex and can be downloaded.
This upgrade includes various changes and fixes made over the past few months as well as report changes.
It is important to update the executable to keep up with the latest fixes and modifications, but also to allow you to upgrade user licenses.via the online licence key generation.
The new Exe download may initially be downloaded from this link and saved to Q:DataSetams directory. Note that the dowloaded files are by default stored in a different directory and you might have to change this before downloading by selecting the “Save As” option. In most cases the Q: drive is the default drive for AMS programs on the server, but some installations might use a different drive. This directory is used because it is accessable to all users and it is therefore best to save the installation file in this directory to avoid every user downloading the installation file.
Remember to make a Backup!
