Valbiz Scheduled Maintenance – August 2017

Headway Systems needs to perform database maintenance to your Valbiz in order to prepare for the up coming Valbiz V8 release.

The maintenance we need to undertake is as follows:

  1. Run a Logical Certify (This is an integrity check to ensure there are no faults with your database, prior to performing maintenance)
  2. Upgrade your Valbiz database to JADE 7.1.09 (Migrate you to the current supported version of the JADE programming language)
  3. Apply the latest Valbiz update file (PAK) to your database

Things you need to know:

If you have any computers running Windows XP, I am afraid to say you will no longer be able to log into Valbiz on that machine any more. Microsoft dropped support for Windows XP a few years back now, and we have tried to support XP for as long as possible, however we can no longer continue to support Windows XP on JADE 7.1.09.

If you are still running Windows XP in your office environment, please reply to this email immediately so we can delay your upgrade, and assist your migration to upgrade your operating system.

When is this happening:

Headway will perform all upgrades over the month of August during the weekends, starting this Saturday (12th August). Please note your database will be unavailable during the course of the maintenance, however you will not experience any downtime during our SLA up-time requirements of 8 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday.

If you wish to schedule a specific weekend for your upgrade, please reply to this email to arrange this.


Kindest regards
