• Microsoft ends support for Windows OS 7 on January 14th, 2020, M3/Accounting Core to follow suit on April 1, 2020

    • Microsoft will be ending support/security updates for their Windows 7 Operating System on January 14th, 2020.  It is not M3’s practice to allow access via unsupported operating systems. In harmony with Microsoft’s decision, M3 will follow suit.  On April 1st, 2020, M3 Accounting Core users who are still using Windows 7 will be unable to access the platform.  Please consider updating your operating system to Windows 10 prior to that time to insure continued access to Accounting Core.
    • This means after January 14, 2020 Microsoft will not be providing security updates or supporting any updates to Microsoft Windows 7 Operating system, which could ultimately put your computer at risk.
    • Due to Microsoft Windows 7 ending support January 14, 2020; on April 1, 2020 M3 customers whose computers are still utilizing Microsoft Windows 7 will be blocked from accessing clientportal.m3as.com and Accounting Core. 
    • Internet Explorer is no longer supported by Microsoft and no longer permitted to access Accounting Core. We suggest using Chrome or Firefox if on Windows 7 for the remainder of time in which Windows 7 is still being supported.
    • Our goal is to provide a reasonable amount of  time between Microsoft ending support for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020 and M3’s blocking access to clientportal.m3as.com and Accounting Core on April 1, 2020.  Please update your Microsoft Windows 7 operating system to a supported version such as Microsoft Windows 10 prior to April 1, 2020.
    • If your organization has any questions please contact Tech Support by way of a case at help.m3as.com or call 770.297.3347.

  • iOS Catalina version 10.15 Issues

    Description of Problem:

    1. Customer has upgraded their MAC to the newest version of iOS (Catalina) v10.15

    Symptoms/Issue(s):

    1. Cannot create folders on the root drive.
    2. iOS version does not support 32-bit applications any longer. i.e. Citrix Receiver

    Solution:

    ***Please be aware that even though Accounting Core will run on iOS version 10.15 (Catalina), you will no longer be able to import, export, or upload due to security changes implemented by Apple prohibiting access to the hard drive. Below you will find some solutions that M3 has seen success with when used; however by using one of these options you will be put in a non-supported situation by M3 on your MAC computer.

    1. The enterprise path will need to be changed to a path that the MAC user can access.For example, a network drive.
    2. If the user chooses they may use a version of a Windows Parallel program, which is a program that is installed on the MAC that runs Windows as a program on top of the MAC operating system.Then set up the folder path in the Windows Parallel.
    3. The last option is to downgrade to the version High Sierra iOS version 10.13.

    Notes/Addendums:

    • There may be changes coming as M3 learns more about this iOS version and how to overcome the current challenges.
