Where’s the Demo Image??? HERE! Today!

Today I’m happy to announce that we have uploaded the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 RTM V1 Hyper-V image set to PartnerSource for your downloading pleasure.

This has been a huge undertaking, and I know we said it would be Beta code, but it isn’t, it’s full-release RTM code! 

A little about the image:

  • Dynamics GP 2013 RTM Code with Web Client deployed
  • Management Reporter 2012 with Web Viewer deployed
  • Office 2013 with demo dashboards installed
  • Some bugs (see below) but working and out to you today!

Some reminders about the image set:

  • Image A and Image B MUST be running both at the same time.  You can use as little as 2GB memory for Image A, and as little as 2GB memory for Image B, but more memory will increase the speed of Image B.
  • Image C is optional and used for Lync demonstrations, otherwise you don’t need to start it.
  • Image A and Image B need to be able to ping each other.  If you set them up per the instructions (use the 2010 R2 image instructions, with small changes for things like network name) they should work fine.
  • We only support Hyper-V as the virtualization program.  If you port this image to any other tool, it is NOT supported.
  • We only support one NIC in the environment.  If you add a NIC (there are reasons you’d want to, we know), we can’t support that.
  • You MUST use (and fully type)       ContosoAdministrator       not just “Administrator”

Some small issues with the image:

  • Please use the GP icon on the taskbar to start GP.  If you use the menu option, you will get an error as it’s trying to start GP2010 R2.  We’ll fix that on the next release.
  • Office 2010 and Office 2013 are on the image.  I don’t think that should be a problem, but just wanted everyone to be aware of it.

All that being said, I am really proud of this image.  I’d like to pass on a huge THANK YOU to two people in particular:

John Dooley – Without all of his tireless efforts on this image, it just simply would not be this good or have happened in a meaninful way.

Aaron Donat – Not only did he get the web client up and running, he upgraded the image to RTM code when we had intentions of delivering this as Beta code.

Thank you!

Now, everyone else, use the image and close lots of new sales!  It’s a new year!

OFF-TOPIC: MacBook, Mac OS & Wired Memory

I got a new MacBook Pro couple of days back and needless to say, I am more than excited to use it.

I have been a Mac OS user for the past 1 year, as I had already replaced my personal computing machine from an old warrior named Lenovo N300 to an amazing MacBook Air. Been driven by that experience, I had always been yearning for my work computer to get changed to a MacBook too.

This topic is more about how Mac OS utilises the System Memory (RAM) to it’s fullest advantage and how it keeps any MacBook machine highly efficient. When we look at the Activity Monitor (equivalent to Task Manager on Windows OS), you would find something like below:

I was so intrigued by the term Wired Memory as all other terms made some sense to my H/W & OS expertise. Checked with my friend (who else but Google), and he as usual returned several results. One post stood out from all other.

A post written by Alex on his blog Bits about Bytes shed some light on this. Read the post here: Is my Mac using too much memory???

It’s a very old post (posted precisely in the year 2007), but an amazing post about the topic which I was interested in. In case some people like me, who has shifted to Mac OS (or going to shift), I thought this post would be for them and would be useful to know about your Mac.

Happy “Mac”ing.
