Note: You should not install hotfix 5 for 4.61 if you use oracle as your database . An issue has been noticed and information/updates will be posted shortly.

If you already have installed Hotfix 5 for Oracle you can rollback to Hotfix 3 by replacing the assemblies in the bin folder and make the correct assembly redirects in web.config according to the readme.txt document. No need to run any sql script since the dabase version is the same.

Added 2007-05-08

Note: Before installing any hotfix, please remember that these packages are not subject to testing in the same extent as publicly released code.
