I got and installed a FTF a few weeks ago. It's Build Number is 125535. The Build Number for HP2 shows up as 125534. Is this difference meaningful?

Hi CB,

Either take a look at the list of bugs that were fixed in the shipping code and determine if your issue is fixed in the shipping build, or give Micro Focus a call to double-check with them.
