About Microsoft Dynamics GP :-)

Files for this company have not been updated.

After trying to add the sample company data for GP10, and log in back to GP, got below message. To fix the issue when tried to run the utility , it would not let me to mark check box before Sample Company Name and so could not proceed. After checking SQL log fine two entries in dynamics..duLCK  table. Deleted them, allowed me to re-run the utility for TWO.

Those who are first time adding sample data check this Microsoft KB

Chunk file converted into dictionary but showing no custom forms in GP.

This happened today why my junior colleague was deploying customization on client machine, His chunk file was prompting to add code, code gets included but when log-in to GP and tried to access custom forms find nothing. He thought issue is with chunk file and recreated chunk file twice but no luck.
He asked me to help him out. So I check GP folder,custom dictionary was there, then I checked dynamics.set file but product information was not there and which makes me to look GP folder properties and what I found is that the GP folder was marked read only so Just unmarked the read only option and un-chunk the file again will solve the problem. 🙂
