Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Compatibility with Microsoft Windows 8 and Microsoft Windows Server 2012

Support engineer “Zeeshan” pointed my attention to this Team Blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/nav/archive/2013/01/28/microsoft-dynamics-nav-2013-compatiblity-with-microsoft-windows-8-and-microsoft-windows-server-2013.aspx. I just decided to “copy” the blog to give it somewhat more attention ;-). Note that Microsoft has finished the procedure to be able to say that both Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 and Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 are compatible with Microsoft Windows Server …

Platform updates overview – 3.70.B – NAV2013 (Updated 3)

Finally a new release of “the list”. Not an easy one once again, especially because about all the KB articles of this year are not accessible (at least not for me…). So this is not a complete list. I’ve sent the problem to Microsoft, and hope to have an updated list soon.

In the meanwhile, I’ve based myzelf on the Overview of Released Platform Hotfixes for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013. although, that list is not correct, though, as it shows the same build for all the errors that were solved :-/. As you can see .. Maintaining a list like this is a challenge ;-). I corrected it..

For NAV2013, I would like to point your attention to the following KB article 2771000: “The application objects unexpectedly contain Microsoft internal change log comments in localized versions”. This means: if you’re upgrading your product or customer .. You’ll spare lots of work if you import these objects first, before you start your merge-process.

To end with, I found KB2790672 quite interesting as well. Many people and products rely on the fact to be able to use temp (buffer) as much as they want, as these do not have to be included in the license. Build 34064 is going to solve that for you.. .

It’s always nice to gain insight on that .. because let’s be honest .. NAV2013 is …
