Microsoft releases its cumulative updates for Dynamics NAV 2018

Microsoft has recently released its cumulative updates for NAV 2018 which includes all hotfixes and regulatory features as well as those released in previous cumulative updates. It is important to note that you may need to update your license after implementing these hotfixes in order to gain access to new objects included in this or a previous cumulative update.

NB: We strongly advise that you get in touch with us before you attempt to install any of the below hotfixes or updates as these may cause interoperability issues with customisations and third-party products which we would need to address.

Please find below a table of the problems in NAV 2018 that are resolved in this cumulative update:
