|Product||Visual LANSA and LANSA for i|
|Pre-Requisite Details||V14 SP2 EPC142010|
|Special Notes||All Version 14 Visual LANSA EPCs include updates that must be applied to Windows and IBM i systems (Independent Visual LANSA development environments only require the Windows updates). Failure to upgrade both sides of a development environment will render the Host Monitor and Super Server applications inoperable. Attempting to use the Host Monitor and Super Server applications without having applied the EPC to both sides of a development environment will generate an EPC mismatch error.|
Make a full backup of your LANSA environment on each platform to which this EPC will be applied.
|IBM i Specific Special Notes||The IBM i instructions are expedited procedures that assume a sound knowledge of IBM i.|
You must use a user profile that is QSECOFR or part of the QSECOFR group.
You must end the web server and run the LANSA for the Web cleanup program before applying this EPC.
You must end the Listener and Host Monitor if active.
