First Step to GP 2010 Upgrade

Before calling your partner to inform them that you’re ready for the upgrade… and probably even before you budget the upgrade: review the GP 2010 System Requirements!

If your Microsoft partner is not purchasing the hardware for your upgrade, you and your IT department need to sit down and review (line by line) the requirements on that document because if you’re running workstations that only have 1 GB of RAM, forget about it!

Or let’s say you wanted to get ahead of the game and purchased a 64bit server – guess what?  Now you have to spend more money to have your partner migrate all your FRx reports to Management Reporter (because FRx is not supported on a 64bit machine). 

There’s a small workaround for this (by keeping a separate server for FRx), but you get my point.

Please, save your company the time, money and frustration.  You can access this document in Customer Source.  Microsoft is constantly updating it.
