ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer Digest - vol 13
The ArcherPoint technical staff—made up of developers, project managers, and consultants – is constantly communicating internally, with the goal of sharing helpful information with one another. As they run into issues and questions, find the answers, and make new discoveries, they post them companywide on Yammer for everyone’s benefit. We in Marketing watch these interactions and never cease to be amazed by the creativity, dedication, and brainpower we’re so fortunate to have in this group—so we thought, wouldn’t it be great to share them with the rest of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Community? So, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer Digest was born. Each week, we present a collection of thoughts and findings from the ArcherPoint staff. We hope these insights will benefit you, too. Kyle Hardin on Windows 7 shortcuts: Windows-M – minimize all applications Windows-Home – minimize everything but the current app Windows-Shift-RightArrow – moves current app from main monitor to the right monitor Requires multiple monitors (Windows-Shift-Left does the opposite) Windows-L – lock the computer Windows (by itself) – then start typing This is how I find all apps that aren't up on the task bar. I haven't missed the Start Menu one tiny bit. Example: Windows W O R D (then hit enter) runs Microsoft Word Review the complete list at Lifehacker’s Master List of New Windows 7 Shortcuts Dan Sass shared a link from Harvard Business Review on quantifying the customer experience: “Of course, the rationale we often hear for not investing to deliver a great experience is that the cost is high. Speaking to executives inside these businesses, however, we often hear the opposite. That is: delivering great experiences actually reduces the cost to serve customers from what it was previously. Unhappy customers are expensive — being, for example, more likely to return products or more likely to require support. Systematically solve the source of dissatisfaction, you don’t just make them more likely to return — you reduce the amount they cost you to serve.” Read the entire article: The Value of the Customer Experience, Quantified Faithie Robertson has a solution for the NAV 2013 R2 bug regarding rendering the wrong caption on report fields: [see the description of the bug in the ArcherPoint Weekly Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer Digest – vol 11] We finally got our fix from Microsoft on this one today. To resolve the issue we have to:
- CUT the fields that are messed up from the page.
- Close and compile the page.
- Reopen the page and paste the fields back in.
- Compile the page.
Error Starting ETW: Access Denied (Administrator rights required to start ETW)The trick is to add the service account that the NST is using to the local administrators group on the service tier server, and then restart the NST. Important safety tip: This will not work with NAV 2013. The config XML file for the NST adds a new key called EnableFullALFunctionTracing in 2013 R2, and that isn't present in 2013. I even tried adding it by hand, but it still doesn't work.
