Components from ACM 8.1.1 cannot be combined with components from ACM 7.1
If upgrading from a 32-bit version of ACM 7.1 to the 64-bit version of ACM 8.1.12, ACM 7.1 must be first uninstalled.
For installations that make use of Safe Mode operation, ACM 8.1.1 2 uses the "Microsoft ACE OLEDB 12.0" database driver for the safe mode database. The ACE OLEDB 12.0 driver can be downloaded from Microsoft here.
It is always a good idea to back up your ACM configuration database before updating. This update makes changes to the database and if for some reason the update is not successful, a backup may be required to revert to your previous version of ACM. Instructions are found in the ACM User Guide under Maintenance –> Backing up the SQL Database
