After upgrading, the new version requires you to configure risk classifications for each vendor again as there are many new features related to risk classifications and how they are calculated. While it is recommended that you go through and reconfigure risk classifications for each vendor, if you would like your previous risk classifications to be migrated over free of charge, please contact Passageways Support and we will be happy to assist you in moving that information over into the new version.
Note: Service pack updates will not work correctly if sql scripts are not applied immediately or result in errors. If errors occur please keep a copy of the errors and contact Passageways Support immediately by calling 765-535-1880 opt1.
