Upgrade from GP 2010 to GP 2013 R2

3d man with Q & A

Question: How do you upgrade from GP 2010 build 2390 to GP 2013 R2

Answer: The documentation from Microsoft that delineates the upgrade path from GP 2010 to GP 2013 R2 is missing the current build of GP 2010 (as of 3/16/2015). The document from Microsoft can be found here: https://mbs.microsoft.com/partnersource/northamerica/support/hot-topics/HOT_TOPIC_MDGP2013Upgrade#UpgradePaths.

The line missing is how to upgrade to GP 2013 R2 from 11.00.2390. The answer is that you have to upgrade to 12.00.1826. The build numbers for both GP 2010 and GP 2013 R2 are achieved after installing the January 2015 Hotfix. Thanks go out to Paul Degneau, at Standard Process www.Standardprocess.com, for suggesting this to me.

Enjoy!

Leslie

Dynamics GP hosting – a great experience with RoseASP

I recently had a great experience that I would like to share. We have a client that was on a very old version of Dynamics GP (8.0), very old version of SQL (2000) a very, very old server (going on 10 years), and outsourced IT. Long story short, their server went down, they lost 2 out of the 3 […]

Workflow Engine in GP 2013 R2 and GP 2015

I’ve seen a lot of activity recently on the Dynamics GP Forum, indicating confusion over what version of SharePoint works with the new GP Workflow 1.0 and 2.0.  Quick answer – none of them.  GP 2013 R2 and GP 2015 both have a native workflow engine built in, eliminating the need for SharePoint altogether.

 
Additionally, Reviewers and Approvers need not be GP users to Review and Approve workflow steps if Email Actions  is enabled.  Approval can be initiated from within email notifications generated by the workflow.

Silverlight "ArgumentException: An item with the same key has already been added" when attempting to print a report

It’s been about 3 months now since working with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 in our production environment. To recap, at Intelligent Partnerships we run all our information technology infrastructure on Microsoft Azure. A big reason for this, of course, is the high degree of mobility required by our consulting staff and the ability to access demo environments and be able to enter timesheets and expenses from anywhere in the world they happen to be. In addition, we need to be able to run our business and access our financials and analytics without being constrained to a particular geographical location. As such we rely heavily on Dynamics GP’s Web Client and Business Analyzer to achieve these goals.

One of the issues we started noticing with Web Client recently is, when you attempt to print a report – Standard or Template – but cancel out the printing on the Report Destination window, then attempt to print the report once more, we would receive the following Silverlight error message:

Severity: Critical Summary: A server side exception of type “ArgumentException” has occurred. Details: ArgumentException: An item with the same key has already been added. at System.ThrowHelper.ThrowArgumentException(ExceptionResource resource) at System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.Insert(TKey key, TValue value, Boolean add) at Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Dexterity.Hierarchy`1.Add(T ancestor, T item) at Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Dexterity.Implementation.WCDexRuntimeStateResourceManager.Register(DexUri parentId, IWCDexWindow window) at Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Dexterity.Implementation.Adapters.WCDexFormOpenStateChangedNotificationAdapter.Notifications_FormOpenStateChanged(Object sender, DexUriEventArgs`1 e) at System.EventHandler`1.Invoke(Object sender, TEventArgs e) at Microsoft.Dexterity.Runtime.Interop.DexNotification.OnFormOpenStateChanged(DexUri uri, DexFormOpenState value) at Microsoft.Dexterity.Runtime.Interop.Win32.NativeMethods.MsaCommandExec(Int16 tag) at Microsoft.Dexterity.Runtime.Interop.Win32.NativeMethods.<>c__DisplayClass26.b__25() at Microsoft.Dexterity.Runtime.Interop.Win32.NativeMethods.ExecuteMsaAction(Func`1 interopAction, String entryPoint) at Microsoft.Dexterity.Runtime.Interop.Win32.NativeMethods.MacroSystemCommandExecute(Int16 tag) at Microsoft.Dexterity.Runtime.Interop.DexMacroSystem.CommandExecute(Int16 tag) at Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Dexterity.Implementation.WCDexMessageProcessor.ProcessCommandExecuteInstanceResourceMessage(IWCDexMessage msg) at Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Dexterity.Implementation.WCDexMessageProcessor.Process(IWCDexMessage message) at Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Dexterity.DexRuntimeStateManager.SendMessage(IWCDexMessage message) at Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.Web.Services.Runtime.Dexterity.DexRuntimeStateManager.MainEventLoop()

This particular error was received attempting to print a sales order processing quote, but we have been able to reproduce from other windows. While I don’t claim to understand all these exceptions, this particular one seems to refer to an issue caused by a “key” being added twice to the same “Generic.Dictionary” collection. Since the action causing the error seems to be a second attempt at printing a report – the same report it seems – somewhere along the lines it would appear that some value isn’t being cleared out from the collection of reports being printed which would cause a duplicate key. Again, pure speculation.

Nonetheless, in speaking to the Dynamics GP development team, it seems to be this issue has been written up and may be solved in the upcoming hotfix release. This issue can be reproduced in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 build 14.00.0619 (January Hotfix).

Until next post!

What can Winthrop Development Consultants do for you?

David Meego - Click for blog homepageYou have probably heard that I was made redundant (laid off) from Microsoft in October 2014 and have since restarted and updated the consulting business that I had before my 13.5 years with Microsoft as Winthrop Development Consultants.

Now I hear you ask, “What can David Musgrave and Winthrop Development Consultants do for you?”.

Well, read on to understand what Winthrop Development Consultants’ business model and plans are….

After working with Microsoft Dynamics GP since version 1.0 and developing for Dynamics GP since version 2.0 in 1994, I have more than 20 years’ experience working with the development tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP including Dexterity, Modified, Report Writer, Visual Basic for Application, Visual Studio and SQL Server.

I have developed a number of products and features which have either been included in Microsoft Dynamics GP or are available as ISV add-on products. These include Named Printers, Advanced Security, Field Level Security, POP Taxes, Business Activity Statement and Pay As You Go reporting (for Australian GST), Omni Tools, Omni Price, Support Debugging Tool and Menu for Visual Studio Tools.

I have presented at numerous conferences on topics such as cross dictionary development, other development techniques, and the Support Debugging Tool.

While at Microsoft, I led the Microsoft Dynamics GP Asia Pacific Development team, the Microsoft Dynamics GP Asia Pacific Professional Services team and spent about 10 years leading the Microsoft Dynamics GP Asia Pacific Support team in the role of Escalation Engineer.

For more details of my experience and history, please see the About Page on the Winthrop Development Consultants website.

So now you know “almost” everything about my career with Microsoft Dynamics GP, let me explain what I can offer you.


Winthrop Development Consultants offers my development experience to the customers, partners, consultants and ISVs (Independent Software Vendors) in the Microsoft Dynamics GP community. While I am happy to work with any organisation in the Microsoft Dynamics GP community, when working directly with a customer I will also liaise with their partner to keep them in the loop.

The offerings from Winthrop Development Consultants can be divided into the following four areas:

Development

If you have a Microsoft Dynamics GP customisation you want developed, enhanced or updated for a new version, Winthrop Development Consultants can help. With over 20 years’ experience developing for Dynamics GP, Winthrop Development Consultants can develop high quality code quickly.

Even if you have your own development staff, think of Winthrop Development Consultants when they have too much work and need additional resources.

Consulting

Sometimes there will be times when your own development team need an extra opinion from someone with an outside perspective. If you need help designing the methodology for your customisation, help implementing a difficult customisation or assistance with complex development techniques (such as cross dictionary or multi-platform hybrid development), please don’t hesitate to contact Winthrop Development Consultants.

Training

If you don’t have any development staff, but want to get someone trained up, or have existing development staff who you wish to train in Microsoft Dynamics GP customisation tools (especially in Dexterity) then Winthrop Development Consultants can satisfy your training needs.

Products

At this stage I don’t have any products on offer, but am negotiating with Microsoft for ownership of the Support Debugging Tool for Microsoft Dynamics GP, Menus for Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP and SnapShot for Microsoft Dynamics GP.

I also have a number of my own ideas for new products and will be working on them. Keep an eye on the blog for updates and details in the future.


 

If you are looking at using Winthrop Development Consultants’ services you can purchase time on an ad-hoc basis, blocks of discounted pre-paid time or request a fix price quote.

If you have any questions or think that I can assist you, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

I will be at Convergence 2015 in Atlanta, on 16-19 March 2015, please track me down to have a chat.

David

Dynamics GP 2015 – Printing Arabic Text

If you are planning to upgrade to GP 2015 and currently having Arabic text in your database need to be printed using report writer, make sure NOT TO UPGRADE to GP 2015.

Normally for printing Arabic text in report writer, if your keyboard was language the text will be displayed as rubbish data as below:

In order to get this printed properly, we used to switch the keyboard language to Arabic and the text will back to normal as below:

However for GP 2015, the system will automatically switch the keyboard language to English upon the generation of the report, and unfortunately the same switch is occurred upon hitting the print button, therefore the Arabic text will never be printed in Arabic and customers will start nagging!

Hope that Microsoft could resolve this soon!
