Winthrop Development Consultants is pleased to announce Build 25 of release of GP Power Tools (GPPT) for Microsoft Dynamics GP was released on 10-Jul-2018. [Edit: This was followed by a hotfix released on 17-Jul-2018 to resolve an issue discovered after the main release.]
This build incorporates further improvements to the underlying Registration and Update Check systems required for the transition of the distribution channel to Winthrop Development Consultants. It also includes some enhancements and bug fixes.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: To ensure continued registration after 01-Jul-2018, please update all workstations to Build 24 or later before the current subscription expires. Install over the top of the existing build, no need to uninstall first. You can also copy the updated files from one install to other installs.
Build 25 of GP Power Tools is available for the following Microsoft Dynamics GP versions:
- Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 (v11.0)
- Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and GP 2013 R2 (v12.0)
- Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 and GP 2015 R2 (v14.0)
- Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 and GP 2016 R2 (v16.0)
- Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 (v18.0)
Updates to Registration and Update Check Systems
After the first week following the changeover of the distribution channel to Winthrop Development Consultants on 01-Jul-2018, some further changes were needed to registration system to handle some situations not previously handled. This build incorporates those changes which are mostly internal.
To ensure that all workstations in a system have been updated to the same build AND hotfix and to make it easier to confirm which build or hotfix is in use, the numbering system for the product dictionary has been updated to use the Minor version number for the build number and the Build number for the hotfix/sub build number. If you look at the properties of the dictionary using Windows Explorer you will see the build number has changed from 18.0.24 to 18.25.1 so that the hotfix/sub build number can be checked without needing to look at the Last Modified date on the About window. This build number matches the installer build number 188.8.131.52 (just without the unused 0.). The installer build number can be easily checked via Control Panel >> Programs Features.
As this build was primarily released for the updates discussed above, there are only a few other changes:
- Updated Security Profiler to stop hidden GP Power Tools forms from showing in the Security Profiler.
- Updated Window Position Memory so that it will only resize a window that is marked as resizable.
- Added Option to Administrator Settings to disable Window Position Memory functionality.
For a detailed change log, look at the GPPTools.txt file which is also installed with GP Power Tools into the Microsoft Dynamics GP application folder.
