Back in January 2011 i wrote about the NAV Launcher, a project based on the Navision Starter v1.2 orignally created by Sergey Gazizyanov back in 2006. Well, i realized that i never put a download link on the site.

Attached in this post is the installer for the .NET project. It requires, as far as i remember .NET framework version 2.

In Dynamics NAV 2009 RTC you have the new functionality with Notifications. It allows you to create notifications and send them to other users, so it shows up in their “My Notification” on the Role Center. The notifications are actually stored in the “Record Link” table as a BLOB field.

This is a great functionality, but as it is now, you can only see the notes from the My Notifications and the notification fact boxes. In this blog post i will take a look at how you can print these notes in a RTC/RDLC report.

Lets takeĀ  closer look at what is stored:

This morning i was reading the blog post from Arend-Jan Kaufmann regarding opening Classic databases with the correct executable version. You can see his blog post here:

Suggestion for Available Databases Form in Dynamics NAV

It reminded me of a tool i basically use on a daily basis, as well as many other people in my company. It is an extended version of the Navision Starter v1.2 orignally created by Sergey Gazizyanov back in 2006. I have added support for the latest version, as well as shell integration for native databases (*.fdb), so you just double click on the FDB file.

The launcher will determine the database version from both SQL and native databases, and choose the right client executable to open the database with. It also can do automated login with database login, by using a default password like sa/sa.

Since the days of Visual Basic 6, where we were creating OCX (Custom Controls) for Navision, and up till now with COM Interop with .NET programming language, the .NET platform has become a great development platform. But because of the limitations of interoperability in NAV we haven’t been able to use true .NET assemblies directly within NAV.

Until now! R2 as you know has announced its arrival in next month (hopefully), and with it the introduction of .NET interop.

The Microsoft Dynamics NAV Team Blog has a great post on this subject, as well as real examples of how to use it. Check it out, this will rock your world!
