Re: Release 2.4.2

Non default company login after files upgrade results in:

Access to application has been blocked until database upgrade is completed by system administrator.

WinXPSP3 / FireFox 37.0.2 / XAMPP 1.7.3 (Apache 2.2 / MySQL 5.0 / PHP 5.3.1.

Default Company login is okay. The Database version shows 2.4.1 in Setup -> Software Upgrade for all companies. Doing a software upgrade on each company does not alleviate the issue.

Since there is no db change in this version, the $db_version variable should have remained '2.4.1'. in version.php. Kindly revert.

Re: Release 2.4.2

This change was done by mistake. Please use an editor, open the file version.php and change the $db_version to '2.4.1'. this will be committed to the repository in a while.

The tarballs at have been replaced, so you can also download a new file. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Re: Release 2.4.2

Committed in GitHub.

The zip of changed files between FA 2.4.1 and 2.4.2 is attached.

Re: Release 2.4.2

Fixed assets menu is inactive after install and updated fixes. I install it from extension and activated but not work please help me to fix this problem

Re: Release 2.4.2

Do not install Fixed Assets extension for FA 2.4.2. It is a native application in FA 2.4.x series - there will be a tab for it. As the Company Admin, login and enable the permission for Fixed Asset Setup for the roles you want, logout and login as such a privileged user. You will see the Fixed Assets tab has the config menu options.
