In January 2020, Microsoft will end support for Windows 7.

We strongly recommend that you upgrade your workstations to a supported operating system soon. For more information, see End of Support for Windows 7.

  • In certain circumstances, the application closed if you attempted to save changes to an existing transaction in the Journal Entry View of the Actions > Enter Trial Balance screen. Details

    This issue occurred if the journal entry being saved had at least one distribution row that was deleted.
