Vista x86 Upgrade to Win7 x64
I have purchased an Acer Aspire 6930G laptop that came with Vista x86 (32
bit) installed but with a free 'upgrade' to Windows 7 x86. I have a
'desktop' and an update copy of Windows 7 (legit) that came with both 32 and
64 bit disks. I have installed the 64 bit version onto the desktop. I want
to install the 64 bit version of Win7 onto my laptop but Microsoft insist
they will only provide the 32 bit version as I am 'updating' from a 32 bit
version. (seems that they are being simply bloody minded). My question is
can I successfully install the 64 bit ve...Deploying SP3 via group policy
Hi everyone. Does anyone know if it is possible to deploy GP9 Service Pack 3
(we're actually deploying the Canadian Year-End Tax update, but it includes
SP3) via Group Policy? Microsoft has instructions for deploying the base
install of GP9 via Group Policy, but I haven't been able to find any
information regarding the updates. If possible, we'd like to avoid touching
every machine for this update.

I am attempting to upgrade to 1.2.
I have CRM server and SQL on the same server. 1.0 works
fine and I have all the upgrades in place as far as I can
tell. During 1.2 setup i get the error:
Setup was unable to install Microsoft CRM Server.
Setup was unable to add the account to SQLAccessGroup in
Active Directory. There is no such object on the server.
The SQLAccessGroup does in fact exist in AD and I am
installing using the administrator account.

I have an Access 2000 database which runs perfectly until
i loaded it on a new machine. This machine was loaded
with Windows 2000 and Access 2000 but it behaves in an
odd way. When I go to a pop up form it looses track of
the current record when returning to the main part of the
system and it appears to do this randomly, sometimes it
is OK then it all collapses!
I suspect that it may be due to later updates in Windows
that somehow make it not backward compatible. I have
tried the database on different older machines and in
Access 2002, 2003 and it is all OK there.

When upgrading Great Plains (from 7.5 to 8.0) do you suggest installing over
the 7.5 client or uninstalling 8.0 fresh?
How about FRX? (6.5 to 6.7)
I like to keep the GP installation clean but I've had success installing over
the existing client. Just make sure you export all modified reports and forms
to package files.
For FRx, it will give you options during the installation process. I would
keep the existing version and install in a new directory.
