Every April, August and December all customers who have a subscription to eMIMS are sent a disk that contains both a software and data update.
When you first purchase new eMIMS Desktop, you will be sent the latest DVD to install it. For example, if you order in July then you will be sent the April DVD to get you started.
If you place your order for new eMIMS Desktop just prior to the April, August or December release, then you will be sent the latest DVD and then the new DVD shortly afterwards.
For example, if you place your first order on August 1st then you will be sent the April DVD to get you started and then the August DVD as soon as it is released.
This means you install the April DVD, then the May, June and July data updates, and then finally the August DVD when it arrives.
If you are upgrading from old eMIMS to new eMIMS Desktop just prior to the April, August or December release, then you may also be sent the old eMIMS CD because the mailing list is extracted a month before. In this case you can ignore the CD and throw it out.
