Dexterity for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 Install Error

David Meego - Click for blog homepageI came across an interesting issue yesterday when I installed Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 and its matching Dexterity 16.0 version.

When installing Dexterity I received an error message which in turn caused the installation process to be cancelled.

Note: We have skipped version 15.0, so that GP 2016 is version 16.0. This avoids the confusion we have had previously with the version “year” not matching the version “number”.

The error was as follows:

Dex Instance Error 1

The internal instance name is already in use. Specify a different instance transform.

This first error dialog is then followed by an Installation Failed message.

Dex Instance Error 2

I did not get this error when I first installed Dexterity 16.0 from the first ISV drop of GP 2016. But I did get it when re-installing Dexterity 16.0 when I updated to the second ISV drop of GP 2016. I thought this was because I accidently started the Dexterity install before the GP install had finished.

Now, because I have written installers for my own products, I had a fairly good idea of the cause of this issue. I was able to locate the registry settings which tell the installer what instances of Dexterity 16.0 are installed and remove them. Then I was able to reinstall.

However, after uninstalling the second ISV drop yesterday to install the RTM versions of GP 2016 and Dexterity 16.0, the same error occurred and this time I was careful to wait for the GP 2016 installer to finish before starting the Dexterity 16.0 installer.

It appears that the Dexterity 16.0 installer is not cleaning up the registry correctly when un-installing.

So, if you come across this problem while re-installing Dexterity 16.0, here is the fix:

Using RegEdit.exe go to the following key:

HKLMSOFTWAREWOW6432NodeMicrosoftDexterityv16

Dex Instance Error 3

And delete the v16 key and all its sub keys.

Then Dexterity 16.0 will re-install successfully.

Hope this helps

David

Hololens Holoportation: Virtual 3D Teleportation in Real-time

David Meego - Click for blog homepageWhile we are highlighting videos of really cool technology from Microsoft, a video on Hololens Holoportation was recently published and it also shows amazing possibilities.

Microsoft Research have taken the three dimensional camera technology to capture people and objects in an environment and combined this with the Augmented Reality ability of the Microsoft Hololens to display the captured virtual people and objects in your field of view at a remote location.

This concept looks very much like the communications holograms we have seen in the Star Wars movies… but now for real and not blue monochrome and fuzzy.

Legendary British comedian Ronnie Corbett dies aged 85

David Meego - Click for blog homepageI grew up in the United Kingdom and one of the funniest programs on television was “The Two Ronnies” with Ronnie Corbett and Ronnie Barker.

If you have not heard Ronnie Corbett passed away last Thursday at the age of 85.

It is sad to lose him, but now heaven is much funnier with both of the Ronnies (and Robin Williams).

Here is some of his comic genius in action:

This is the first release of Microsoft Dynamics GP to support HMTL5 for its web client, which enables it to work across any browser on any device (including Apple and Android tablets).

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 is scheduled for a general availability worldwide release on the 1st May 2016.

Pam’s article goes on to mention some of the other enhancements such as the OData connection for Microsoft Power BI and easier data at a glance with more All-In-One document viewers.

Have a read of her post here:

There will be a Feature of the Day series starting this month to highlight the many other new features.

Looking forward to GP 2016.

#BPST Batch Posting Service Toolkit says it is not registered from Web Service, but is registered

David Meego - Click for blog homepageAs mentioned in my article #GPPT: GP Power Tools says it is unregistered on login, but is registered, an issue was discovered with Batch Posting Service Toolkit (BPST) where it would fail for live companies with a registration error, but only when called as a web service via Service Based Architecture (SBA).

If you made the same call using the testing window inside Microsoft Dynamics GP, the service calls would work without issues.

The problem came down to the fact that SBA environment might not match Dynamics GP environment. In our case, the Mekorma Product Manager was not initialized and so the registration check failed.

After some testing, I was able identify the changes needed to make the registration system work without needing to specifically initialize the Mekorma Product Manager.

RegistrationAbout

If you are facing this issue, please make sure you download the latest Batch Posting Service Toolkit build from the Mekorma Batch Posting Service Toolkit. It will have a Last Modified Date: 26-Feb-2016 (as highlighted on the screenshot above) or later.
