Custom Splash in Microsoft Dynamics GP

One of the undocumented features of Microsoft Dynamics GP is the ability to use a custom splash screen.

Here is an example custom splash screen I knocked up based on the azurecurve website’s theme;

As long as the file is a bitmap (.bmp) 488 x 300 pixels in size, simply dropping it into the Microsoft Dynamics GP install folder (typically %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Dynamics\GP) will display the custom splash next time GP is loaded.

David Musgrave, on Developing for Dynamics GP, explained the history of the splash screen and has posted all the splash screens from Great Plains 5.5 through to Dynamics GP 2010 here.
