#GPPT Now that GP Power Tools is available, what happens to my Support Debugging Tool installation?

David Meego - Click for blog homepageIf you follow this blog, I am sure you already know that GP Power Tools has been released through my distribution and support partner, Mekorma, for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, GP 2013 and GP 2015.

The question I am hearing now from existing Support Debugging Tool sites is:

Now that GP Power Tools is available, what happens to my Support Debugging Tool installation?“.

The short answer is simple …. Nothing, absolutely nothing.

The long answer is summarised below:

Development: The Support Debugging Tool is discontinued and there is no further development.

Support: The Support Debugging Tool is no longer supported (it was never supported by Microsoft).

Expiry: The Support Debugging Tool will not expire.

If you are using the Support Debugging Tool with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 or GP 2013, you should really upgrade to GP Power Tools so you can be on a better product that IS supported and IS being developed futher.

The following articles contain details of the many enhancements, improvements, additional features and fixes that GP Power Tools has over the Support Debugging Tool:

The special introductory annual subscription price of US$365 means that you can have Peace of Mind for a dollar a day. You will even get an extra day for free every four years. :-)

That’s cheaper than a morning coffee and much more useful.

For more information on ordering, please see the GP Power Tools Portal:

GP2015 R2 Upgrade – “ASI_MSTR_Explorer_Favorites: Number of results columns doesn’t match table definition”

There were couple of exceptions related to GP2015 R2 that I wished to share here. One would be discussed here and other one on the next post.

After upgrading to GP2015 R2, while doing a routine testing, following error message was thrown while trying to open Smartlist:

Screen Shot 2015-07-31 at 6.53.32 PM

Full message as follows:

Unhandled database exception:
A get/change operation on table ‘ASI_MSTR_Explorer_Favorites’ failed accessing SQL data.

Number of results columns doesnt match table definition.

Number of results columns doesnt match table definition.

EXCEPTION_CLASS_DB
DB_ERR_SQL_DATA_ACCESS_ERR

Debugging this error took me to the table Smartlist Favorites Master (ASIEXP81). Strange, however, that number of columns indeed matched.

I remembered this issue happening in GP 10 and GP 2010. Suggested solutions were to run GRANT.SQL on all databases and changing ODBC provider to SQL Native Client. However, in my case, both were already done and confirmed.

To avoid any further delay or issue(s), I decided to backup the records from ASIEXP81, recreate the table using GP SQL Maintenance and push the records back from the backup table.

Resolution: Drop and create the table Smartlist Favorites Master (ASI_MSTR_Explorer_Favorites, ASIEXP81) using GP SQL Maintenance.

Only that, I did not have to reinsert the records. When I opened the Smartlist after recreating the table, it automatically populated all records. Strange, again. But it worked.

Word of caution: Always take backup before you do anything with the data.

Microsoft Windows 10 is now here

David Meego - Click for blog homepageFollowing on from yesterday’s post: Microsoft Windows 10 is almost here.

Windows 10 is now here and starting to install on PCs that reserved their free upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.

My eldest son has already upgraded his Surface Pro 2 and is trying out Cortana, the Edge browser and the Xbox One integration.

Cortana

He has already tried streaming the video from the Xbox One to his screen. So now he can play Xbox games from his room while he is meant to be studying…. Great. :(

If you want to download the ISO images for Windows 10, check out the official Microsoft site below:

Remember you must upgrade first before you can do a clean install, as mentioned in yesterday’s post.

Enjoy

Microsoft Windows 10 is almost here

David Meego - Click for blog homepageIt is already the 29th July 2015 in Australia and Windows 10 is almost here.

I know that because it is already downloading into a hidden C:$Windows.~BT folder onto my machines.

Now one question that many people are asking is “Can I do the free upgrade as a clean install if I have downloaded the ISO image?

The short answer is No.

The long answer is ….

Can I perform a clean install using the Free upgrade?

No, it will require that you are running a previous qualifying version and start the upgrade from within the qualifying version. You can initiate a clean install after completing the Upgrade.

Please be aware that you cannot use the free upgrade offer to perform a clean install on first attempt. You must first upgrade from the qualifying version of Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 (whether you do it through Windows Update or using the .ISO file). Ensure the upgrade is completed successfully and then ensure that it is activated. You can then proceed to do a clean install by using recovery media or using the Reset function in Start > Settings > Update & Security > Recovery > Reset this PC (Get Started).

For more information on all your Windows 10 questions, please see the following article:

#GPPT 21 Reasons why you should upgrade to GP Power Tools

David Meego - Click for blog homepageAs the release of GP Power Tools approaches, I am hearing the following question from existing users of the Support Debugging Tool:

“Why should I pay to upgrade to GP Power Tools when the Support Debugging Tool is free?”

GP Power Tools will be available for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, GP 2013 and GP 2015. This article provides some insight into the enhancements and new features you will get when you upgrade from the Support Debugging Tool to GP Power Tools.

So to start with, here are twenty-one benefits of GP Power Tools:

  • Continuity: GP Power Tools is supported and being improved & enhanced. Also it is available for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 and will be available for future versions.
  • Familiarity: GP Power Tools provides all the features you know and love in the Support Debugging Tool.
  • Performance: GP Power Tools is faster because it uses SQL tables rather than the Debugger.xml setup file to store data.
  • Security: GP Power Tools is more secure because it uses SQL tables rather than the Debugger.xml setup file to store data.
  • Simplicity: GP Power Tools is simpler to setup as you no longer need a shared Debugger.xml setup file. The shared folder is still useful for storing logs.
  • More Simplicity: Advanced Mode Dex.ini setting to hide Advanced Mode features has been removed. Feature visibility is only controlled by a user’s application security settings.
  • Navigation: GP Power Tools has easier to use multi-level menus from the main window.
  • More Navigation: GP Power Tools now has an area page as well as sub menus on the application menus.
  • Resource Information: Now includes a Script Explorer for identifying global & form level procedures & functions.
  • Runtime Execute: Can now execute scripts against modified windows and modifier added fields.
  • .Net Execute*: You can now write scripts in Visual C# and Visual Basic.Net and execute them without needing Visual Studio.
  • Mix ‘n’ Match Scripting*: Using Helper Functions you can write scripts using any combination of Dexterity, T-SQL, Visual C# and Visual Basic.Net at the same time.
  • Runtime Executer*: Allows users read only access to execute published Dexterity Scripts.
  • SQL Executer*: Allows users read only access to execute published SQL Scripts.
  • .Net Executer*: Allows users read only access to execute published .Net Scripts.
  • Administrator Password Setup*: You can now have a separate Administrator password for GP Power Tools Advanced Features instead of the System Password.
  • Setup Backup and Restore*: Export and import all GP Power Tools settings to and from a Debugger.xml file.
  • Security Log*: Review data captured by the Security Activity Tracking and create Security Tasks and Security Roles from the data.
  • Database Validation*: Validate that your GP users and companies match your SQL Logins, Users and Databases. Validate that all tables exist in your system and confirm that the tables that do exist have the correct data structure. Ensure smooth upgrades by avoiding potential problems before they occur.
  • Service Procedures*: Create user defined custom Service Procedures that can be called as Web Services (GP 2015 or later) or from Visual Studio or Dexterity.
  • Usability enhancements*: Exit After Processes menu option, Full width fields on the Company Login window and more.

* = New window or feature.

I have invested as massive amount of time into making GP Power Tools a reality. As the development effort is no longer subsidized by Microsoft, it is necessary to ask a token amount to cover the costs of future development.

For the amount of time GP Power Tools will save you, and for a dollar a day there is no reason not to upgrade.

Why not install the free Public Beta and see for yourself?

David

PS: More information on the new features coming soon.
