Just as the Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 are released, Microsoft announces that Dynamics GP 10.0 is already compatible with them. No service pack required. While my memory is not what it used to be, I do not recall any other new operating system that an existing version of GP was immediately compatible with. We have had customers asking about this for a while now, so this is a very nice surprise. Take a look at the updated GP 10.0 System Requirements for more detail. (Link requires a login.)
On the flip side, according to a recent post on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog support for GP 9.0 is not planned on Windows 7 (and I guess Server 2008 R2). While this is not unexpected, it is a little disappointing since GP 9.0 will be supported for another year and a half. For more details on GP version support dates, take a look at my GP support lifecycle blog post.
Do you already have experience with Dynamics GP on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2? Please post a comment and me know how it’s going.
