David Meego - Click for blog homepageThis is a reposting of an article I originally wrote on my Developing for Dynamics GP blog.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Support Debugging Tool is now GP Power Tools from Winthrop Development Consultants (http://winthropdc.com/GPPT)

It has been a while since Support Debugging Tool Build 16 was released back in January 2012.

While I have not been able to invest much time in adding new features to the Support Debugging Tool (SDT), I have been able to fix a few issues which have been reported by the community.

So, I felt that it would be worth releasing this updated code as the Build 16 Hotfix (Last Modified: 12-Jul-2012). This hotfix consolidates on the previous Build 16 release fixing about 15 issues which will make the SDT even better.

Below is a summary of the changes made:

  • Fixed keyboard shortcuts on Runtime Execute and SQL Execute windows for Execute Button, now Alt-E or Ctrl-E.
  • Fixed issue with Cache tables when writing to path with a period (.) in it.
  • Fixed Resource Explorer Exporting showing “[Not Found]” for blank columns on display.
  • Fixed logging of Smartlist related security errors causing logs to grow. Now errors will only be logged if the Security Profiler is open.
  • Fixed Export File Names from Security Information Resources window to represent data being exported rather than current user and company.
  • Fixed Resource Explorer so that it does not generate an error when checking the number records in a table that does not exist in SQL Server.
  • Fixed Dictionary Control being applied to incorrect dictionaries when Dictionary ID is contained within a Dictionary ID of an enabled product.
  • Fixed Dictionary Control being disabled for non “after login” settings when starting Automatic Debugger Mode or Manual Logging Mode.
  • Added updated Status column on Security Profiler to display when the Status value has been changed from standard settings by Dictionary Control.
  • Updated Automatic Debugger Mode when using Automatic Start to compress User/Company data by storing All User or All Company records.
  • Changed non dictionary Security Object access denied messages to be treated as warnings by the Security Profiler Automatic Open mode.
  • Fixed Illegal Address error from Security_Profiler_Other_POST script which could sometimes occur when switching companies.
  • Disabled Automatic Debugger Mode Status hyperlink on main Support Debugging Tool window when access to the window is not available.
  • Added separator to Options menu on main Support Debugging Tool window to match the Debugger menu on the window.
