Please Login to Remove!

I've been asked to upgrade our current BES enviroment to a version that will allow some of our users to view office 2007 documents. Can i upgrade straight to version 4.1.6 or do i need to do a upgrade on our current version ?

It has been better to upgrad to sp7 on 4.0 and then upgrade to 4.1.

YMMV, have a good backup before proceeding.
