I was recently assisting a fellow Dexterity developer to create scripts to automatically create all the Security Tasks and Security Roles for their ISV (Independent Software Vendor) add-on product for Microsoft Dynamics GP.
While they were checking their code in Dexterity Test mode, the security settings for their product never showed up. This was weird as the data appeared to be in the tables and worked when in Runtime mode.
Since forever, the pundits have been preaching the demise of Great Plains Dynamics / Microsoft Dynamics GP.
When I joined Microsoft in 2001, one of the things that influenced my decision was the thinking that Dexterity (the language behind Dynamics GP) was going to die and so I decided that I would be better off inside Microsoft than continue working as an ISV (Independent Software Vendor).
Now sixteen years later in 2017 and I am back working as an ISV, and Dexterity, along with Microsoft Dynamics GP, is still going strong… despite the launch of Dynamics 365.
I recently received feedback about Visual Studio Integration Toolkit complaining that the tool requires registration for each customer site it is being used at.
I wanted to take an opportunity to respond to the feedback with some history and facts about the product that will explain why it now requires registration.
Welcome to 2017. I hope you all had a fantastic time over the Christmas and New Year period.
If you have studied software development or computer programming, I would be surprised if you did not at some stage cover sorting algorithms.
I want to make everyone’s life easier.
I should clarify that this is life in respect to my work life. As a Developer, IT Professional and Microsoft Dynamics GP Consultant I love anything that makes my job easier.
That’s why I created GP Power Tools (formerly the Support Debugging Tool) in the first place.
Time to vote.
This is the fifth in a series of blog posts where I will be highlighting Microsoft Connect product suggestions that need the community’s support. If you agree with the product suggestion, please help get as many votes as you can.
For the Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP developers out there, I am pleased to announce that the next build of the Visual Studio Integration Toolkit for Microsoft Dynamics GP (VSIT) is now available for download.
The Visual Studio Integration Toolkit was previously known as Menus for Visual Studio Tools (MVST), which was discontinued in October 2014. If you are still using the previous product, please upgrade to the supported product.
