    This will be a 2-for-1 post today as the example given solves a frequently asked question and was used to solve a customer issue.

  • Blog Post: Dynamics GP Crashes After Installing Addin

    One thing we've noticed recently is an uptick of cases involving Visual Studio Tools assemblies causing Dynamics GP to crash after being installed.

  • Blog Post: Quick Tip: Debugging Visual Studio Tools

    Let's jump right in. We debug our Visual Studio applications over and over; and attaching to the test environment is among the most important, and time-consuming skills we use.
