  • Central Prerequisites: The CSI will support updates from the CCH Central Suite 2023.1. If you have an earlier version of the CCH Central Suite Installed, please contact CCH Software Support before proceeding with this update. If you are outside of the twelve month supported update window then a managed update will be required and this will be serviced when purchased and scheduled as an additional service with our Professional Services Team.
  • Microsoft Prerequisites: The CSI, requires the following Microsoft components to be present:
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8 – for further information click here
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1
  • Windows Imaging component
  • Windows Installer 4.5
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 6 Desktop Runtime and ASP.NET Core 6.0 Runtime (CCH iFirm AML only)

Note: if these prerequisite components are not present then the CSI will present an option to install them before proceeding with the update except in cases where you are require the Microsoft .NET 6 Desktop Runtime and ASP.NET Core 6.0 Runtime to facilitate the functionality of the CCH iFirm AML module. If you do require the installation of the .NET 6 Runtimes on all client devices then this can be installed via the CSI Tools page or installed from the Microsoft DotNet 6.0 download page. Future CCH Central suite modules and/or components may require later versions of the Microsoft .NET Framework as newer versions of the Microsoft .NET Framework from .NET Core 3 onwards follow an updated servicing lifecycle and are supported for 18 months only.
