Error Starting Microsoft Dynamics GP After Installing PSTL

Microsoft Dynamics GPI’m taking a slight detour away from posting the series of how to’s on the Professional Services Tools Library to highlight an installation error that I’ve recently seen when installing PSTL.

A client recently installed PSTL and reported receiving the below error message;

Microsoft Dynamics GP - A Get/Change Operation on Table 'gpAppEnabled' cannot find the table

I’d sent them the PSTL download along with the instructions on how to install it without realising that there was a missing part to me instructions (which has now been added).

When installing PSTL into a company for the first time, you must log into Microsoft Dynamics GP as the sa user as there are some tables which get created (covered in KB Article 861564 which is actually a retired article but does mention the issue and the resolution).

Microsoft Dynamics GPContinuing Mark Polino’s weekly DynamicAccounting.net series of posts recommending an MS Connect suggestion.

This weeks is a vote on improving intercompany transactions. While, as Mark points out, the suggestion is a little on the vague side, voting to imProve intercompany will focus Microsoft’s gaze upon the subject of intercompany support.

If you’d be interested in seeing this change made, please go to Connect and vote.

As an aside, I’m at square one house wise now but had my time taken up With a side project (details to be announced soon) but I now aim to get back posting with some regularity.

How To Rebuild GL00105 Using PSTL

Mark Polino’s Weekly MS Connect Recommendation – SmartList Left Pane Resizing

Microsoft Dynamics GPMark Polino on This weeks is a vote on allowing the left hand (treeview) pane of the SmartList to be resized.

Management Reporter 2012 for Microsoft Dynamics ERP Rollup 1 Released

Mark Polino Steps Forward To Promote MS Connect

Microsoft Dynamics GPIt’s very likely that you’ve never heard of Microsoft Connect; Connect is used by the Dynamics teams to decide what to put in future releases and users have the opportunity to add suggestions and vote on existing items.

Mark has a post on DynamicAccounting.net where he proposes doing a weekly post to promote an existing suggestion for improvement of Microsoft Dynamics GP on Connect for people to vote for, or against, inclusion in a future version of Microsoft Dynamics GP. His posts on this subject will be a weekly feature where he highlights a different suggestion each week for the community to review and decide if it would be a worthwhile addition.

This weeks post relates to a change to allow Unit Accounts to be zeroed during the year end process in the GL. Please take the time to review this suggestion and vote for, or against, and help to improve and guide the future development Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Microsoft Connect has been around for a while but it woefully unused, I’m as guilty as anyone atnot using it much, but it is a way for both partners and customers to have a hand in guiding the development of Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Please join in and follow Mark’s posts on this subject, every Tuesday, on DynamicAccounting.net.
