Hooray, hooray – FM 10 is now running again, after a visit from our support bods; time to get cracking on the documentation backlog … Just one thing to check now: Help > About now says 10.0.2.419 – I can't use the "Add/Remove Programs" tip, because as a mere user I don't have access to it. So: is my version now fully patched? The blog posting says about the installer patch says "We are issuing an 10.0.3 update on FM10 …", but I am aware that FM patches are sequential.
The patcher didn't change the Help > About values reported, so if you've applied the patch and FM10 is running, I would assume that you're fully patched to the latest version. he FM patches are sequential, but they (as of late) do check to see if you're missing any and will notify you if the patching process can proceed.
So, if I read you aright, running the installer patch would have notified me if earlier patches were missing? though, as you say, the most important thing is that FM 10 is running :-}
