It’s only been a week since 16.6 was released but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about everyone still using 16.5 SP05. If you’re on 16.5 SP05, please stop what you’re doing and head over to www.support.sap.com and navigate to Downloads–>Support Packages and Patches. As always, make sure to select your appropriate bit size (32 or 64).
There are 3 files in the download:
- PD Client
- PD Portal/Web
- PD Proxy
If you are using any of the above components, you will need to upgrade them. Do not just upgrade the client and go about your merry way. Upgrade all of them, and then go about your merry way.
