Upgrading from 2023 R2 to 2024 R1

We did an upgrade to 2023 R2 (23.211.0017) as an initial upgrade step from 2022 R2.

We then tried to do an upgrade to 2024 R1 and downloaded the latest installer.

After running the install and trying to do an upgrade of the existing 2023 R2 install, it appears that the 2023 R2 version we just installed (23.211.0017) is a later version than the installers for 2024 R1.


Upgrade notes for 24.101.0059:

You can upgrade your Acumatica ERP instance to 2024 R1 Update 1 if you have any of the following builds installed:

• 2022 R2 Update 22 (22.222.0013) and earlier

• 2023 R1 Update 15 (23.115.0031) and earlier

• 2023 R2 Update 9 (23.209.0023) and earlier


I then looked at the Upgrade notes from 24.100.0139


Acumatica ERP 2024 R1 can be upgraded from the following particular versions:


• 2023 R2 Update 6 (23.206.0006) and earlier

• 2023 R1 Update 13 (23.113.0042) and earlier

• 2022 R2 Update 20 (22.220.0026) and earlier


Question: how long does it usually take Acumatica to allow upgrades to the latest versions of previous major versions?

Hi @ggnabasik 

If I read correctly How much time it will take Acumatica to release the next Build of 24R1 to complete your upgrade?

If it is the case they will release a build for 2-3 Weeks for 1 build release,’

Release Notes have to follow before doing an upgrade.

I haven’t seen anything official, but generally, older builds are able to upgrade immediately upon release (as you can see with the initial releases of 24.100 being backwards compatible up to 23.206 and 24.101 being backwards compatible up to 23.209).  There are generally more releases (i.e. every 2-3 weeks) when the product is newer and then the release schedule slows down to one every 4-6 weeks as the product is more mature.

23.211 that you’re on now which is the most current release for 23R2, so it’s possible they haven’t necessarily been able to check for full compatibility or there are known features that are currently incompatible.  I would expect that it would be compatible with the upgrade within the next release or two, but I have seen it take up to 60-90 days after a release for all existing versions to be upgrade compatible (i.e. last year we had a customer on 22R2 and we needed to upgrade to 23R1 and I think we were finally able to upgrade in mid-June).
