#BPST Batch Posting Service Toolkit build 11.1 released

David Meego - Click for blog homepageWinthrop Development Consultants is pleased to announce Build 11 of Batch Posting Service Toolkit (BPST) for Microsoft Dynamics GP was released on 11-Aug-2020.

This build includes a number of enhancements as well as improvements to the registration, file creation and installer systems.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: With the release of build 11, support for build 9 has been discontinued. Sites running on build 9 or earlier need to update before their subscriptions can be renewed. It is recommended that ALL sites update to build 11 to take advantage of the new features, enhancements and fixes.

Build 11 of Batch Posting Service Toolkit is available for the following Microsoft Dynamics GP versions:

  • 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 and GP 2018 R2 (v18.0)
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP Modern Lifecycle (v18.2)

System Enhancements

When installing on a system which has multiple launch files in the application folder, the Additional Launch File Installer window will offer to add Batch Posting Service Toolkit to the other launch files for you.

The Batch Posting Service Toolkit windows have been added to the Administration >> System >> Cards menus on the Administration Area Page.

The Registration system can now warn users if the registration has failed or has expired. This will avoid issues caused by not knowing that the product is no longer registered.

There is an extra check on login for version mismatches between the reported dictionary versions and the constants in the dictionary.

The table creation/updating system has been updated to be more robust and provide information if there are any issues.

Web Client Compatibility

Build 11 of Batch Posting Service Toolkit has been updated and tested for Web Client Compatibility. Updates include adjusting windows to render correctly as well as code changes to handle differences in behavior between the Desktop and Web Clients.

Installer Improvements

The Batch Posting Service Toolkit installer for build 11 has been improved to allow for a silent uninstall as well as a silent install. This can be useful when upgrading from a previous release to help with removing the older version of Batch Posting Service Toolkit.

If you want to automate the uninstallation process, you can use the command line options to perform a silent uninstall for the default instance (once the product is removed from the Dynamics.set launch file using the uninstall inside GP or manually):

PostingServices_18.00.0011.exe /s UNINSTALL=TRUE TARGETDIR="C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics\GP2018\"

Note: The syntax is the same as the silent install, with the UNINSTALL=TRUE parameter instead of INSTALL=TRUE. You can add an additional logging option if desired, add /l=<path to logfile> to the end of the command line above. To specify an instance add DYNINSTDESC=”R2″.

Other Enhancements

For a detailed change log, look at the PostServ.txt file which is also installed with Batch Posting Service Toolkit into the Microsoft Dynamics GP application folder. To see the updated documentation, look at the user guide which is also installed with the product.
