Dynamics NAV 2009: Upgrade Toolkit

The Upgrade Toolkit for Dynamics NAV 2009 (W1) has been released. It's available for download on Partner Source.

It is not necessary to perform a data upgrade to move from Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009. To take advantage of the Role Tailored client in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, you must carry out an object upgrade from Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 SP1.

This means that a Dynamics NAV database running on version 5.0 with Service Pack 1 can be directly technically upgraded towards Dynamics NAV 2009. Older versions before 5.0 SP1 should first be upgraded towards version 5.0 SP1.

The Upgrade Toolkit consists of a set of tools and procedures that are designed to help you upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009. The tools cover the upgrade for the following products:

  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 3.70
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 4.00

The tools and procedures that you must use vary depending on the version you are upgrading from.

When you upgrade to a Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 database, you can use the database in either the Classic client or the Role Tailored client. However, if you have designed new forms or customized standard forms in the Classic client and you want to use them in the Role Tailored client, then you need to transform the forms. (Using the Form Transformation Tool)

Regarding the Form Transformation Tool, there was an issue with assigning correct control ID's when the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 application is customized. A hot fix has been released here:



Hey.. thanks for this one, I remember when I upgraded it that time it was quite difficult. I can't remember what was the reason... anyway I think it's time for me to upgrade it again...
