Hi,

Quick suggestion--there is no need to uninstall GP 10 before you install GP 2010.  You can leave it installed, and you should, as you will see in this situation.


This error is described in KB Article 952054.

https://mbs2.microsoft.com/knowledgebase/KBDisplay.aspx?WTNTZSMNWUKNTMMYXUPYZQPOUXNXSPSYPTZKSKKUYOWQLSKMNMRZWSQQQTPNTTNZ

It can occur when a module cannot be upgraded.  My guess is that the issue is that your GP 10 version must be upgraded before you upgrade to GP 2010.

Please see this GP 2010 upgrade path page:

https://mbs.microsoft.com/customersource/support/selfsupport/hottopics/hottopic_mdgp2010_update.htm?printpage=false

Based on a quick review of that page, it looks like version 10.00.1779 must be upgraded to Version 11.00.1860 before you can install GP 2010.


If you want to verify this, locate and open the Duinstall.log file and post the message near the end of the file that corresponds to the date/time that you received the error.

The file should be located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics\GP.

The error should look something like this:

Failure encountered ON 12/10/2007 at 3:30:42 PM. Error: Product 949 does not support upgrading from version 3.99.0.

Once you know the product ID, query the current version of that module:

select * from DYNAMICS..DB_Upgrade where PRODID = '<XXXX>'


Once you know the version, review the GP 2010 upgrade path documentation.

https://mbs.microsoft.com/customersource/support/selfsupport/hottopics/hottopic_mdgp2010_update.htm?printpage=false


Since you uninstalled GP 10, you will need to reinstall it, then apply the latest SP, then run GP 10 Utilities to update the database.  Once that is complete, you can try the GP 2010 upgrade again.

Let me know if that makes sense.

Thanks,
