This refresh supports IBM i 7.2, 7.3, and 7.4. Ordering the refresh is recommended in order to keep your tools up to date. Refresh 68 (April 15, 2018) was the last full refresh for IBM i 7.1 since that release is now out of service. You may still download that refresh. We will continue to support the 7.1 tools with fixes as needed until April 30, 2021.
Please make sure you have the following PTFs or their supersedes installed on your system. These correct IBM problems that may cause an install failure. The problem was reported as APAR SE66239.

In our testing for IBM i 7.3 we found an operating system problem that affected the CVTAUTLOBJ, CVTAUTLOBJ2, and DSPEMTAUTL commands. IBM has released a PTF to fix this problem. Please apply this PTF before installing this refresh on IBM i 7.3.
