Licensing Shortfalls in Dynamics GP

Written by

Spring is here & that means SPRING CLEANING!  With that in mind, system administrators should be thinking about cleaning up their Dynamics system & shoring up their licensing needs.  Thus, I would like to tell everyone about a free utility that will help cleaning up your licensing needs.

Microsoft Dynamics GP is licensed concurrently.  Meaning, if a user is logged into multiple companies at a single time, they will also be using multiple licenses at that time.  For firms with multiple companies running on Dynamics GP & where the number of licenses is very close to the number of actual users, this can present a problem.

For those where purchasing additional licenses is not an option, there is a utility to prevent users from logging into multiple companies at the same time.  To install, download from Customer Source & extract the Prevent_Users_Logging_In_To_Multiple_Companies.zip file.  Then  simply log into Microsoft Dynamics GP & select Tools > Customize > Customization Maintenance, then import the extracted file .

No longer will multiple logins from a single user burn multiple licenses.
