When your session is launched, the version of the files that you are running on is passed to the system. If it is a current GOLD release version, you may proceed. If it is not, the system checks against the release effective date. If it has been less than ten days, you receive the warning but have the option to bypass it by pressing your F3 key. If more than ten days has passed, you will receive the warning and will be unable to proceed until you have updated your software. This guarantees that you have all the latest upgrades and enhancements available for your CU*BASE GOLD software.
