Keep up to date with Jim2 upgrades here: (copy and paste into a web browser), and we suggest you check out the What's New in Jim2 page regularly for new features and enhancements.


Happen Business will advise customers when there are major upgrades. As emails can easily become lost, it is worth regularly checking the the two pages mentioned above.



Before upgrading the server operating system and Microsoft SQL, the latest service packs must be installed. In particular, Server 2008R2 (this includes SBS2011) must have the latest Service Pack and .NET Framework 4.6.2 installed (recommended for all operating systems). It is also important to keep a record of the Microsoft SQL Server SA user password, as this will be required during the installation. If unsure of this password, please contact your IT support to verify it before proceeding, as this information is not stored by Happen Business.
