Thanks to Natalie, I added two more updates on 5.0. This is the new overview.
Update 2 – NODBC
Update 2 – NODBC
Update 4 – NODBC
Update 1 and 4
I found one more blog with hotfix information:
Here we go:
Thanks. I already added it to my (new) list. Seems like I have to update it asap. Will do it as soon as I sorted out something with Microsoft... .
Thanks for the heads up!
There is one more important hotfix for 4.0 - KB 950920, build 26410.
there are at least two new ones:
126.96.36.199709 in KB946247
5.0.25344.0 (only SQL) in KB943581
Refer to mbs.microsoft.com/.../KB__NAV.htm to find perhaps even more.
I guess the KB is not publich jet, but it is on the way. I just know it because I have the files and KB here for testing and it finally solves some the the crazy performance issues we have been fighting with since the release of 5.0.
You are absolutely right on that one, but I was already aware of it. It just makes life easier. Talking about Service Packs, Updates, Hotfixes, KB-articles ... it's just too complex.
Actually, I wanted to do it like Update 1.1, Update 1.2 and so on ... Probably, when Update 2 comes out, I'll rename them ;°).
Thanks for the heads-up!
I can't find the hotfix you mentioned, by the way. Is it a private one?
Great you keep this up to date Waldo. I always read your Blogs with great interest. However you have misunderstood microsoft's update system.
Updates are a collection of KB's issued as an update. For 5.00 there is only one and that is KB 943858
The other once are hotfixes or stand alone KB's if you will.
You are btw. missing KB 948512 on SQL performance.
Keep up the good work.
This is explained in the KB article. You have to request the hotfix from Microsoft.
Where can they be downloaded?
I would go for Update 8.
I'm kind of in doubt here. Especially after reading the different KB articles.
With a fresh new SQL 2005 64bit server and NAV 4.0 SP3, which update should we take?
You are absolutely right. Thank you very much for the info.
It's becoming quite complicated with all those updates I must say.
Waldo, I think that you have mixed up some info:
KB 945349 (4.0 Update 8) includes two Build Nos.: 5.0.25653.0 and 188.8.131.52638.
Hence 4.0 Update 8 has to be Build No. 25638 instead of 25653 in your list.
Build 25653 for 5.0 is missing.
You're right. I added this one.
It seems that I don't get proactively informed anymore .
