NAV Developer Preview – Fix Script

When you want to experience the new developer tools, you need to set up a VM on Azure. Now, this takes a while. On top of that, it’s all “preview”. As in: “might crash”. And in: “if it crashes, there might not be a decent way out”. I was able to completely mess up my …

Now, I’m always trying to find the “best practice” for different circumstances. That’s also why I’m so deep into PowerShell – I …

The Future of Dynamics NAV Extensions

Last week, there was a call from Microsoft (a so called “Directions Webinar”) all partners could attend. It was a public call, with about 400 people – which kind of means: the information is considered to be public. Now, I’m not good in expressing my opinion. I never felt that it was my job nor …

Although I do think this is quite an interesting blogpost on how to work somewhat more easily with deltas, by the use of a function that is part of my PowerShell Module, called: Apply-NAVDelta.
