I have been burnt before with crowd funded projects (I supported 3 smartwatches and only one make it to production and it under-delivered 😦 ), so I was wary of getting involved again. However, this was the second generation of the GPD Pocket and demo devices had already been delivered to a number of YouTube reviewers. I felt fairly safe to get involved with crowd funding again, as this would give me a discount and get the device earlier.
Once I have everything updated, I usually Compile All to make sure that all the code is compiled and that there are no compile time errors. Don’t want any of those pesky “FP: Script Not Found” errors you get if you have saved but not compiled a script.
The WannaCry ransomware or crypto-virus has infected many computers around the world and highlighted that the threat of scams, viruses, trojans, worms and ransomware is very real and that you need to be forever vigilant to keep your systems and your data safe.
In this article I want to remind everyone of some easy and simple ways to keep yourself safe.
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.
Following on from my previous article: Upgrade to Windows 10 for free before time runs out, this is another reminder to make sure you take advantage of the free Windows 10 upgrade offer for users of Windows 7 and Windows 8 before it finishes on 29th July 2016.
If you let the offer expire, upgrading to Windows 10 will incur a charge of US$119 for Windows 10 Home and US$199 for Windows 10 Pro.
The free upgrade offer lasts for one year and so will expire on 29th July 2016. So this article is a reminder for everyone out there who has not upgraded yet to get a move on.
On Thursday 12th November 2015, the Microsoft Store in Sydney opened. Located at Westfield Sydney on the Pitt Street Mall, this is the first flagship Microsoft Store to be opened outside of North America and is a wonderful commitment to the Australian market.
Along with the opening of the store was the Australian launch of the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book computers announced at the Microsoft Windows 10 Devices Briefing.
OK, it has only been a week, but it has been annoying and today after yet other search of the interwebs, I have a solution.
I have already had to help a few people through these steps, so I thought I would post them online for others to see and use.
Following on from my previous post: Solving Performance Problems with Microsoft Dynamics GP and Windows 10 – Part 1, I was still not happy with the performance of Dexterity and Microsoft Dynamics GP on my newly updated Windows 10 development machine.
This article takes you through the steps to get your Dexterity and/or Dynamics system running fast on Windows 10.
This article takes you through the steps I used to identify the issue and what I did to resolve the issues. After making the changes listed in this and the next article I am happy with my Windows 10 development environment.
I delayed the installation of Windows 10 for a little while primarily because I wanted to get GP Power Tools released and did not want anything to mess up my development environments.
I know that because it is already downloading into a hidden C:\$Windows.~BT folder onto my machines.
Well, Cortana is coming to Windows 10. In fact, if you have the latest Technical Preview of Windows 10 downloaded (as part of the Windows Insider program) you can already start playing with Cortana. Just make sure all the language and regional settings are set to US.
If you have not heard already, at the recent “Windows 10: The Next Chapter” event, it was announced that Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for all devices running Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 for 12 months after its release.
To get you excited about what is coming, I have gathered a few of the Windows 10 videos together.
