When you nonetheless have this outdated Nice Plains Accounting for DOS or Home windows (archaic Home windows utility, primarily based on outdated Home windows occasion pushed mannequin and primitive graphical interface), we tried to deploy it on Windows7 and outcomes are offered on this publication.  In case you are not conscious, you could redeploy GPA for DOS/Home windows in shopper server setting, the place GPA server is in Home windows Server 2003/2008 and GPA shopper is on WindowsXP, Home windows Vista platforms.  These information had been described in earlier publications on the subject.  As we speak we’re publishing new data, related to Microsoft Windows7 working system:

1. GPA could possibly be deployed on Windows7 32 bit model.  Please, be suggested, that GPA and Btrieve/Pervasive SQL 2000 SP4, three, 2 are usually not suitable with 64 bit working system. As we write these strains in September 2010, when you merely go to the pc retailer and attempt to buy regular PC pc (both on AMD or Intel processor platform) – there is perhaps the excessive likelihood that the shop does have all their computer systems in 64 bit model (Windows7 64 Dwelling or Skilled, Vista Dwelling or Skilled).  Right now, one of many good choices to get 32 bit Windows7 put in – buy small PC pc (not Netbook, as they is perhaps Windows7 incompatible) with Intel Atom processor, when you can’t discover with Windows7 32 bit system preinstalled.  Then merely obtain and set up Windows7 32 bit from MSDN subscription

2. Set up.  In our case we used Windows7 32 bit, loaded to small PC pc (Zotac with Intel Atom processor, we loaded Windows7 Skilled 32 bit), which is at present obtainable by way of TigerDirect and it’s bought with out OS.  We put in GPA for Home windows from model 9.5 set up CD, following all of the defaults.  When you want your GPA only for transactions inquiries, you may set up single person GPA with database instantly in your Windows7 pc (sometimes in C:GPSGPDATA folder, you probably have a number of corporations in GPA, it’s best to copy firm database folders into GPA folder, they normally are abbreviations of the corporate names).  While you want to change GPA for Home windows default firm, please find GPAWIN.INI file in Home windows folder (normally on C: drive), find DefaultCompany=GPDATA string and alter Default Firm folder as required

three. Nice Plains Accounting assist.  GPA could possibly be upgraded all over the present model of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010.  Improve is just not free, you will have to pay for the software program (normally with good low cost, as GPA license proprietor you’re going to get the privilege to good low cost in buying Dynamics GP with related set of modules), plus you will have to pay for consulting hours emigrate from GPA to Dynamics GP (migration software is on the market from Microsoft Enterprise Options).  Nevertheless, we all know a number of tales of GPA clients, who merely have to stay to Nice Plains Accounting as a result of lack of price range (downsizing is usually the case).  We’re very happy to assist your GPA for DOS, Home windows and to some extent on Macintosh.  How we assist GPA, see the subsequent paragraph

four. GPA assist data base in Excel.  Microsoft Enterprise Options does not assist GPA instantly (in all probability as a result of excessive overhead to coach consultants and have them assist solely few calls, versus Dynamics GP 11.zero. 10.zero or 9.zero full time eight hours work day workload for typical technician).  For this reason direct GPA assist is outsourced to Dynamics GP VARs who carry quaint Nice Plains Accounting consultants in workers (clearly these individuals assist newer variations of Dynamics GP as properly, however they nonetheless bear in mind their GPA coaching lessons and certification exams)

5. Typical GPA assist circumstances.  Majority of calls we face are about GPA corrupt knowledge restoration and restore.  Second in recognition is the request to maneuver GPA from Novell/Home windows NT4 server to one thing extra trendy (Home windows 2003, Home windows Small Enterprise Server 2008).  The third candidate is if you find yourself shifting away from GPA to a different Small Enterprise ERP utility, one thing like SAP Enterprise One, QuickBooks, PeachTree, MYOB, Accpac and it’s essential export knowledge (clients, distributors, workers, Gross sales, Buying transactions, Chart of Accounts, GL transactions)

6. Shifting away from GPA when what you are promoting is rising.  Our suggestion is to contemplate switching to Microsoft Dynamics GP, the place you could have direct migration and improve path.  In our opinion migration to such high-end Company ERP purposes as Oracle Financials, PeopleSoft, SAP R/three might be not optimum from software program licenses and consulting hours budgets

7. Nice Plains Accounting and eCommerce programing issues.  We don’t suggest to stake on GPA, if you find yourself rolling out ecommerce site with buying cart, as in our opinion GPA Btrieve database is perhaps too unfriendly for contemporary ecommerce programmers (it’s attainable to connect with Btrieve GPA tables by way of ODBC connection, see GPA Btrieve handbook for particulars).  We’d slightly suggest improve to Dynamics GP after which roll down ecommerce site integration there

eight.
