IMPORTANT NOTE: Please install the latest Microsoft Updates before running the CMS Full Version Installs, CMS patches, or CMS Service Packs. You will need to choose the Custom option for the MS updates to get the critical and optional updates. Full Version Installs are virtual downloadable versions of the installation CDs. The Full Version Installs must be used when upgrading from an older version to the current. For example, if you have CMS Professional 2009 installed and you want to upgrade to CMS Professional 2010 SP1, you must use the Full Version Installs. You can use the Full Version Installs to upgrade an existing version, for example, CMS Professional 2010 to CMS Professional 2010 SP1, but the Full Version Install files are much larger and may take longer to download. Instead when upgrading an existing version, use the Service Pack installs listed below. 

A Smart Patch provides corrections for both Non-Fund and Fund product (unless otherwise noted) between versions and are usually for one error, maybe several in one given module such as Order Entry or Accounts Receivable, etc. Smart patches are written to only work with a particular version of the code and module and are characterized by their naming convention format  XXUPD###.EXE or XXUP####.EXE, for example, APUPD121.EXE or APUP12_2.EXE - smart patch file for Accounts Payable Version 12.1. Smart Patches can include corrections for reports. A Data Conversion may be required and depending on the size of your data may take some time, so plan accordingly.
