Version updates for the Frazer DMS program are released on a weekly basis but are not automatic.

*An internet connection is required and version updates MUST be done from the main server computer for Frazer. All sub-windows should be closed in the program and Frazer should be closed on all workstation computers.
All version updates include the latest version of the OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control) Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons Database.

If Frazer is open on any workstation computers or if sub-windows are open when you begin an update, a warning will appear to indicate that the program is in use.
Be sure that the program is not open or minimized on any workstation computers.
If the program is closed, but the message still appears, restart the main computer and run the update again.
In addition, Local Firewall Settings and Proxies could prevent Frazer from accessing the internet, and affect certain aspects of the program. If you suspect this may be the case, have your local technician check your network and internet settings.
