Another reason for the lack for articles recently is that I have been working on a hotfix for GP Power Tools.
Developers…. make sure you read the last bullet point in the list below. No more SDK woes.
A hotfix for GP Power Tools Build 22 was released on 19-Jun-2017. This release shows as Last Modified: 19-Jun-2017 on the About GP Power Tools window and the installer version is XX.00.0022.7.
In case you missed it, yesterday was Fabrikam Day for the Microsoft Dynamics GP community. This was the 12th April 2017, the date that the sample company’s, Fabrikam, data is based around.
For more information about Fabrikam Day and the sample company have a look at my article from yesterday:
Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 added lots of new features and enhancements and fixed a number of bugs too. However, it also introduced a change that is now causing errors in some ISV’s (Independent Software Vendor) products.
I first came across this issue when preparing to release GP Power Tools build 22 and was testing the Database Validation feature on my Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 install.
After months of work, I am extremely excited to announce that GP Power Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP (GPPT) Build 22 is now available for download. Please update your systems to get all the new features.
GP Power Tools was previously known as Support Debugging Tool (SDT), which was discontinued in October 2014. If you are still using the previous product, please upgrade to the supported and much better GP Power Tools product.
At the end of last year, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2 was released.
If you have not already installed/updated to this build, Microsoft has released lots of information about the new features in blogs, documentation and video forms.
I had a nice surprise this morning. I received an email from Terry Heley from the Microsoft Dynamics GP Support team notifying me of the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2.
This should not have been much of a surprise as the release was promised to be at the start of December at the reIMAGINE 2016 conference. I think the surprise was that December is here already. Christmas is getting closer.
