    Which SR should I upgrade too? currently on SR3

    Michael Taylor

      Hi,

       

      I was looking to upgrade our QV server and  desktop installs to the latest version, but have come across an issue.

       

      We installed SR9 desktop on a development machine. but found existing apps (even with minimal data) would crash when we tried to do things like 'add text in charts'.  I then downgraded that machine to SR8, but since found reports on here with a major bug in the calendar object.

       

      Which version seems to be the most stable?  We are looking to add Direct Discovery functionality, but I don't want to jeopardize our production server or development desktops.

       

      If you have had no issues with a later version then it would be good to hear which one.

       

      Thanks

      Michael

          Hi Michael,

           

          I would play it safe and liaise with your partner/support to help with your upgrade and to recommend based on your findings which version to go with.

           

          Saying that I am using SR7 at the moment which seems quite stable, unsure based on your applications though if you would still get problems I'm afraid.

              Thanks Joe,

               

              I'll give support a call tomorrow, but I can't help thinking that they'll recommend the latest SR as this should be the most stable, with the least amount of bugs - But, SR9 caused some apps to crash when performing simple tasks and SR8 introduced a new bug with the calendar.

               

              I might go for SR7 anyway as that seems to be fairly stable and I think used amongst a few people from what I have read.  We've only left it this late, as I'm nervous about causing issues on our PROD server

               

              Mike.
