Title:DynamicsGP Version 10 on Windows 7?
Description:Will DynamicsGP Version 10 run on Windows 7?
Why yes it will, thanks for asking.

Actually, all the pain we experienced with Vista has made this a non-event. There are even printer drivers that are labeled for use with Vista that work with Windows 7. Even the 64 bit version.

I’ve loaded GPV10 on 2 Windows 7 machines with success. The first install was on an old workhorse Dell Optiplx 760 with an Intel core duo and 1 GB RAM. This machine was loaded with Windows 7 Professional Edition. The machine was slow to launch GPV10, (as should be expected) but once the app was running, performance was pretty good.

The second machine was a new Optiplex 960 with 8GB RAM running 2 X 160 GB 10K RPM HDD in a RAID 1 array configuration. This machine is running Windows 7 Ultimate Edition 64 bit. Naturally this machine launches into GPV10 a little quicker.

The only issues I ran into was the dreaded 'please verify your ODBC settings and that BCP has been correctly installed. Utilities will exit'. This is an easy fix and is caused by UAC (User Account Control) being turned on by default. Tech Support gave me this:

In Windows 7 the UAC functions a little differently as it is now a slider rather than a distinct on or off feature. Below are directions to locate and turn off this feature.Start Control Panel User Accounts User Accounts Change User Account Control SettingsWhen you open this you will see a slider, slide it to the bottom to turn it off. This should allow you to continue with your service pack installation.

The only other issue I ran into was with ODBC DSN on the Windows 7 Ultimate machine. Utilities wouldn’t recognize the DSN when it was configured on the ‘System DSN’ tab. No problem when configured on the ‘User DSN’. Permissions no doubt.

Net result. Fear not Windows 7. Go forward and dog-food this much improved OS.
