I’ve recently started taking a look at Leslie Vail’s book, Developing Business Applications for Microsoft Dynamics GP which was published in December by Packt Publishing. The book was written using Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010; this is not a criticism as the book will have taken a fair time to write and was published two days after Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 was released so there wasn’t time to do an update to the latest version.
However, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 was available I’ve decided to perform the practical examples using this version rather than GP 2010 because I had just finished building a customisation environment with GP 2013 installed in it and I could easily add Dexterity and the other tools used in the book to the environment.
As I was following the steps in Chapter 3 of the book, which is an introduction to Dexterity, where common errors and issues encountered in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 and how to resolve them are explained, I came across an error which was specific to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013;
The solution to the problem is to copy two dll files (Microsoft.Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.BusinessIntelligence.Homepage.dll and Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.BusinessIntelligence.Homepage.Framework.dll) from the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 installation folder to the folder where the Dexterity dictionary is stored;
With the two dll files alongside the Dexterity dictionary, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 can be started from Dexterity in debug mode without any further problem.
I won’t be writing a great deal about Dexterity other than what I cover while reviewing Leslie Vail’s Developing Microsoft Dynamics GP Business Applications book published by Packt Publishing which covers Dexterity, Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP along with the other development tools available.
