Windows 10 Calculator Replacement: Series Index

February 16th, 2019 by Ian Grieve

ApplicationsTime has flown over the last 12 months. It was this time last year that I complained on Twitter about the new Calculator app in Windows 10 and Steve Endow suggested an alternative called Old Calculator for Windows 10.

Well, I’ve installed it without issue on a few machines since then and not had any issues, so I thought I’d share a little more about this app.

All Workflow Approvers Need A Display name in AD

February 15th, 2019 by Ian Grieve

Microsoft Dynamics GPGetting on towards two years ago, I did a post where I mentioned that AD Groups used as approvers need to have a display name set; I don’t seem to have mentioned that ordinary domain user accounts set as approvers also need to have a display name set.

I’ve recently been reminded about this on a test system where the admin account I was logging in as did not have a display name.

Where there is no display name, you can set the approver, but when you click OK, the name disappears.

Implementing SmartConnect: Configure Windows Service

February 15th, 2019 by Ian Grieve

eOne SolutionsThis post is part of the series on Implementing SmartConnect, an integration tool from eOne Solutions, which can take data from any source and integrate it into Microsoft Dynamics GP (and other systems such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM or Sales Force amongst others). It has a drag and drop interface to make creating integrations quick and easy for all users rather than just developers (as many integration tools target).

Once the core of SmartConnect has been installed, there are a few steps which need to be completed. The first of these is to configure the eOne SmartConnect Service to start with Windows. In theory it is configured to do so during the installation, but I’ve found that the service tries to start before SQL Server, but fails. This service needs to be running to allow maps to be scheduled to run automatically.

To remedy this problem, you have two options:

  1. Configure the service startup to Automatic (Delayed Start).
  2. Add a dependency for Microsoft SQL Server to the service.

Either one of these options, should be sufficient to remedy the issue and allow the service to correctly start and therefore allow maps to be scheduled.
