A Diary of reIMAGINE 2016: Part 19 – Conference Day 3/Leveraging GP Power Tools

reIMAGINE2016The final session I attended was Leveraging GP Power Tools which was a joint session between David Musgrave and Mariano Gomez; Mariano did the introductions to each section, with David then doing the demonstration.

I’m not as familiar with the GP Power Tools as I should be; I wasn;t that familiar with it’s predecessor, the Support Debugging Tool.

This session was aimed mainly at the deveoper tools, but the guys did have time to cover tools in other parts of the program.

GP Power Tools is sold by David via Mekorma, which is where Mariano works, with three modules being available for purchase separately but any one module and you get a System module included.

Unfortunately, I was unable to say goodbye to the guys as their session ended at 1230 and I was scheduled to take some Association of Dynamics Professionals examinations at 1300 back at the Hilton Garden Inn.

When I am back from vacation, I am going to have to get the latest verson of the GP Power Tools and spend some time going through them as, from what I saw, there are features from which not only Perfect Image, but also our customers, would benefit.

While I was at the conference, I did have an email exchange with one of PI’s Development Consultants where I advised that they would probably find the GP Power Tools useful.

GP Power Tools Now Available

Winthrop DCWinthrop DC has now officially launched the GP Power Tools and which are available to purchase from Winthrop DC’s partner Mekorma.

The GP Power Tools includes all of the functionality of the old Support Debugging Tool that they replace, but have new functionality, enhancements and bug fixes.

There is a special introductory annual subscription price of US$365 (one free day every four years!).

More information can be found on the GP Power Tools here.

I am/was a Support Debugging Tool user; what now?


If you were a Support Debugging Tool user on Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 or 2013 then absolutely nothing needs to change. SUpport Debugging Tool will not expire.

That said, you should consider upgrading to GP Power Tools for one major benefit: GP Power Tools is fully supported by Winthrop DC.

While this may not sound like much, the old Support Debugging Tool, which was offered by Microsoft, was not supported at all (not even by Microsoft).
