It is with GREAT EXCITEMENT that we are announcing the availability of the new Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 SP3 Technical Demonstration Toolkit/VPC!!!
This has been an enormous project!! I am very proud and thankful of the work from all who have made this project a reality. There is no question, this is the BEST Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 VPC we have released yet!!
Here is the link to the download page on PartnerSource:
Here are some highlights of the new Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 SP3 VPC:
As always we STRONGLY ENCOURAGE all of you to download and read/review the documentation associated with the new VPC. We have significantly revamped the documentation to only help you better understand this new VPC and to improve your overall demos! IMPORTANT: This new VPC will have two .vhd files. They are: MSFTDynGP10SP3.vhd and MSFTDynGP10SP3 Pagefile.vhd. The pagefile .vhd is used for additional performance improvements. You MUST also utilize the MSFTDynGP10SP3.vmc (Virtual machine console file) file (Please review page #3 of the “How To Setup” document on the download page to properly use this VPC image.)
All of the demo scripts that are posted on this download page (from the link above) have been tested against the new VPC. We have not tested any of the older demonstration scripts. However, the older scripts may still work with the new VPC. In FY10, look for a new IT demonstration script. We are also considering the creation of new Demo2Win! Field Service, Project Accounting and Manufacturing demonstration scripts as well.
In addition, this new VPC has been uploaded to VM Express.
In the August/September timeframe, we will be releasing a differencing disk with the Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 SP4. No additional improvements, just the SP install.
We will then take a few weeks off from building images, and then turn our focus to the Microsoft Dynamics GP 11.0 VPC/Technical Demonstration toolkit. This project will be built from scratch/from the ground up. It will NOT be an upgrade of the current Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 series of vpc’s. A beta VPC image for GP11.0 will likely be available in the winter of 2009/2010 and then a GA image will likely be available at Convergence 2010.
PLEASE forward to anyone who demos Microsoft Dynamics GP!!
Happy demoing and thank you again to everyone who worked on this project to make it a success!!
