Great Plains 7.5 on Vista
Posted on 2007-04-02
Okay, here's the problem. I've got a new Vista laptop. I've installed Great Plains 7.5 on it so that I can connect to our database. Installation went fine, upgraded to Service Pack 5. I can log in and move about just fine with 99% functionality except for the following:
1) When I first open Great Plains, I get the message saying that New Code has been found and do I want to include it. I'm not certain exactly what the code is, but it's either from the Service Pack or the Purchase Order Enhancements we added. It flashes a few files by very quickly, but I did notice POE2277, SRVCADV, and one or two others. This message comes on every time, and Great Plains seems to have full functionality whether I answer yes or no to the question. So I think it's all installed, but just not registering that it's installed. Any ideas how to get this registered?
2) On the Smart List, I can no longer use the Export to Excel option. This machine also has Office 2007 installed. When I attempt the export, I get the message "Unexpected Error; quitting". I get the feeling that this error has to do with either the new version of Excel or Vista's UAC, from looking up that same cryptic error message on other questions on EE and elsewhere. Any ideas on this one?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
