How do I upgrade Cashmanager Desktop to the latest version?
From October 2017 we will not be able to generate new annual license keys for desktop versions that are older than 6.8.
By ensuring that you're up-to-date with the latest release we can continue to license your database and, because your annual subscription fee includes access to version updates, there is no charge to upgrade to the latest release.
