uniface service/maint patches

How can you tell if a service  or maintenance patch has been previously applied.

  1. Hi Dave, whenever you apply a patch, you will find a TXT file with the patch id in your uniface installation directory. But because patches are build on top of each other, only the last one really matters. And you can get the patch installed from the HELP => ABOUT Menu. Success, Uli

  2. Thanks Uli

    I found the c106w32.txt file which makes me believe the C106 patch was applied. The help/about screen shows release 8.3.01 and update 8.3.01.02 (0827_1).  But I can't figure out what ".02(0827_1) represents. Obviously a patch, but is it C106? The patch was applied years ago by a contractor and I'm trying to determine our current patch status.

    Thanks again Uli

  3. You can start your idf.exe or uniface.exe with the /who command line switch.
    That gives you a lot of information.
    Only snag:
    I don't remember in which Uniface version the patch number was added to this information.
    From 8.4 onwards it certainly is in there.
