Assuming this is directed at the original question... yes, that's in the readme. No, apparently that isn't related. See my next-most-recent post in this thread for why.

Well, this doesn't exactly provide a way to twiddle the bits and cause an unlock of finance, but it's how I fixed it for me. The reason for the lockout , I think, is because I first restored my pre-upgrade backup to my new 3.5.0 install. My theory is that MLS knew it was an older database version (b...

lajackson, That's interesting, but has not been my experience. This second computer has never done a Send/Receive. Further, after my blow-it-away-and-start-over due to the restore error, I did not need to do a Send/Receive on the original computer. My current suspicion is that there is some kind of ...

Dunno... I moved the unit directory (as mentioned in the backup/restore wiki here: https://tech.lds.org/wiki/Lost_user_names_%28MLS%29#Option_B:_Restore_the_most_recent_backup_from_disk ) and then recreated from the backup. All is well, latest transactions still show up, payees still missing address...

Well, if we want to test the theory, how about backing up the main machine and then immediately restoring the backup to the same machine and see what happens? Weep, wail, teeth gnash.... bah! Okay, so that seemed terribly reasonable. Backed up, logged out, logged in, restored... 'An error has occur...

MLS 3.5 update lost all member payees' addresses

First check post 3.5 to a member and I noticed there was no address. As those doing finance stuff know, you cannot print a check without a fairly-complete address. Second member (I had three in the batch) also lacked an address, as did the third. I went to my list of payees and clicked (by chance) o...

MLS 3.5 restore continues to require finance "file" from Church headquarters

MLS 3.5 has been just dandy, but my old practice of testing the backups (by restoring on another box) is no longer working. Sure, the restore works well enough, but the financial data are all inaccessible pending the great "file" from Church headquarters which will unlock functionality. To...
