Dynamics NAV / Business Central Developer Digest - Vol 353
This edition of Developer Digest highlights the Business Central 18.3 update, what’s cool about Windows 11, and working with the AL debugger.
The Dynamics NAV and Business Central community, including the ArcherPoint technical staff, is made up of developers, project managers, and consultants who are constantly communicating, with the common goal of sharing helpful information with one another to help customers be more successful.
As they run into issues and questions, find the answers, and make new discoveries, they post them on blogs, forums, social media…so everyone can 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 community—so we thought, wouldn’t it be great to share this great information with everyone who might not have the time to check out the multitude of resources out there? So, the ArcherPoint Microsoft Dynamics NAV Developer Digest was born. Each week, we present a collection of thoughts and findings from NAV/BC experts and devotees around the world. We hope these insights will benefit you, too.

Windows 11 Virtual Machine
Kyle likes Windows 11: “Cool.”
Michael H asks: “Very cool. Did you create an empty hyper-v VM and load Win11 from an ISO? May I ask what link you used to download the ISO?”
Kyle responds: “I created a new VM with the latest Windows 10 build and then signed that VM up for the Windows Insider Program, Development track. They do not have a pure ISO available yet, so the only way to get the preview is from Windows 10.”
