Dynamics GP Partner Newsflash: Old Great Plains reactivation service

December 22, 2017 by  Filed under: Computer 

If historically you had Microsoft Dynamics GP or older Great Plains Dynamics or eEnteprise and even Great Plains Accounting for DOS and Windows, and now you need to redeploy that legacy Corporate ERP for audit or data inquiry purposes, we would like to announce this as old Great Plains support service.  

Historical Great Plains versions: 9.0 and 8.0 – these wereavailable on Microsoft SQL Server or MSDE exclusively.  Great Plains 7.5, 7.0, 6.0, 5.5, 5.0, 4.0 –these versions were available on three DB platforms: Microsoft SQL Server,Pervasive SQL 2000 (formerly known as Btrieve) and Ctree.  Great Plains Accounting for DOS and Windowswas available on Btrieve: 9.5, 9.2, 9.1 and earlier.  Please, see legacy Great Plains Corporate ERPredeployment highlights:


1.       StandAlone computer.  Each version, includingGPA for DOS could be mounted on standalone Windows XP or Vista workstation.  You should have Microsoft SQL Server 2000Developer Edition, or older SQL Server 7.0 Dev for MS SQL based versions.  For Pervasive SQL or Ctree standalone DBversion installed automatically.  For GPAfor DOS or Windows we recommend to deploy it on Pervasive SQL 2000 SP3


2.       RegistrationKey.  If you are on Microsoft SQL Serverbased version, reg key should be in the backup of your Dynamics database.  Pervasive and Ctree store reg key in Dynamics\Systemfolder.  We recommend you to sign ChangeVAR letter to Alba Spectrum – in this case we can get your registration keyfrom your records in Microsoft customers database


3.       Consultingtime and cost.  It depends on the numberof your companies and version.  If youhave only one company, then for Great Plains on all three DB types it shouldtake three hours.  If you have more thanone company, it should take longer.  ForGreat Plains Accounting it typically longer, as there is specific technology onhow to tune Pervasive SQL 2000 to work with GPA


4.       DataExport from Great Plains.  If you arewalking away from GP to another Corporate ERP platform and need export ofmaster records and historical transactions for following data migration to newERP, you should request help on Great Plains table structure.  If you are only requiring training on basicdata structure, we recommend you to order two hours of training from our GreatPlains technical consultant.  If you needfull service and would prefer GP tables to be extracted to popular DB platform,such as Microsoft Access, Tab Delimited or CSV text file, please feel free torequest quote from us


5.       OldGreat Plains Data Repair.  For Pervasiveor Ctree we use ODBC connection technology and Microsoft Access to fix specificrecords.  All you need is to open yourcomputer to our Great Plains technician via Web Session or provide remotedesktop or VPN connection.  We can unlockforgotten Great Plains System password for old or current GP
