The following error message pops up when Yearli attempts to open after updating to the latest quarter:

“# out of # updates could not be applied”.


It could be an issue with anti-virus software. The error will also display if a database version does not match the software version.


Procedure 1 (Reapply database updates)

  1. Disable any anti-virus or anti-spyware software.
  2. Navigate to C:\Program Files or Program Files (x86)\Greatland Corporation\Yearli\20XX*, where XX is the year, and locate the file called Versions or Versions.ini.
  3. Open the Versions.ini file in Notepad.
  4. Change the line that says “PatchLevel=#” to “PatchLevel=-1”.
  5. Save and close the file.
  6. Open the Yearli program and apply the available updates.
