Release Notes for Connected Business 24

Release Date: 05/17/2024

Upgrade Considerations:

Important Reminders: The Auto update will not overwrite the installation folder for CBE instead it will create a folder "CBEUpdate" that contains the update/changes for CBE that can manually be applied to your CBE or web folder. Before upgrading, please back up the database and all server components, including website folders.  The web services component (Internet Connection) is no longer supported and was removed from this version.

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2017 Minimum Requirement from Installer
  • ERP Web Services have been removed from this release. Please use a VPN instead (with our cloud client edition). 
  • If You Had A Third-Party Developer Create A Custom ERP Plug-in For You In Version 19 Or Earlier, You Will Need To Have Them Re-Compile it In Version 20-23 SD

  • Sale Quote
  • Sales Order
  • Invoice
  • RMA
  • Credit Memo
  • Purchase Order

You will need to re-arrange the layout of your customizations for them to operate properly.
