The SEC has released EDGAR 21.1.3.u1, which contains changes related to Form MA. Because these changes are limited in their scope, they are being addressed in a software update to the GoFiler software suite that is outside the normal release cycle. In order to obtain this patch, you will need to use the Updater.exe file within the application installation directory. Users who are filing Form MA before the regular software update are encouraged to download and install the patch.
To update your application to version 5.8a Patch B, follow the steps below:
Close the application.
Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the application installation directory. This is usually located in C:\Program Files\. If running a 64-bit operating system, your installation directory may be located within the C:\Program Files (x86) directory instead.
Double-click on the Updater.exe file. Please note that this file contains the name of the application and will vary depending on which application you are running. For example, the updater for GoFiler Complete is GoFiler_Updater.exe.
Press the Yes button to force the application to update.
To verify that you are running the patch release, you can go to the About dialog located in the Help Menu. The dialog will show “5.8a” as the version number and Patch Level B for Form-MA.dll.
You can also request the DLL updates from our support team to manually update your software.
If you have not yet updated to version 5.8a, then you do not need to take any action at this time. The patch will be downloaded as part of the regular software update.
