Bugs fixed

Known issues

    Note: This same workaround is required in CENTRAL 10.4 if SP2007 is upgraded to SP2010.

  • If CENTRAL 10.4 on SP2007 is upgraded to CENTRAL 10.4 SP2010 then while upgrading to CENTRAL 10.5 on SP2010 (upgraded from SP2007), user needs to take back-up of this updated web config file (duplicate entries are removed) and then restore the same in upgraded CENTRAL 10.5 environment.
