Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains 9.0 will not start on the server. GP 9.0 installed on a server and was running properly with two clients computers. One client computer died. Installed client on another desktop. Client Install appears to have been successful. The client sees the server, the database and accepts "sa" or a user's login. Then the Client has to shut down because its version is not the same as on the server. The GP_Login Errors.log lists the products that are not the same version.

I can't get the program to open on the server to try and push out client updates. When I try to run GP or GP Utilities, Distributed Process Manager opens, but it does not have any options to select except "Close."
Also, DPM shows up on the taskbar, but will not maximize. If I run task manager, I can "switch to" it, but the only option available is "close."
I have tried running GP or GP Utilities from a remote connection and on the server itself. The result is always the same.
Currently, do not have access to the other client computer.
I've searched here and on the GP KB for possible fixes.
I already know GP 9.0 is no longer supported and that there are limited SQL server options will run this version. I am researching whether to upgrade to a newer version or switch to different program. Have maintained Customer Upgrade Option for all the years since install. Not sure we use enough of the program to justify upgrading.
