Platform updates overview – NAV2013

When I was documenting the platform updates, I realized that there aren’t that many platform updates for NAV2009 anymore. Therefore, I decided to create a new page for it on the menu above on this blog. You can find it here now (Above menu / Dynamics NAV / Platform Updates / NAV2009..).

For NAV2013, there ARE (quite) a few new updates, so please do check this list when you have problems.

Last month, I have been in contact with Microsoft for a problem I documented a while ago, about CurrFieldNo behaving quite strange. I came across the same issues when creating a new product for iFacto, and I took a chance in reporting it once again. It doesn’t make sense to work around issues when trying to implement decent architecture, does it? Well, it resulted into a bugfix, but it hasn’t been made public, yet. In the meanwhile, this is going to be the link where the upgrade will come: https://mbs2.microsoft.com/Knowledgebase/KBDisplay.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;2888350.

For the rest: enjoy!
