NAV and Windows 10 again

Month ago, I’ve wrote about using of Microsoft Dynamics NAV on Windows 10. I tested NAV ‘Corfu’ CTPs on Windows 10 prerelease versions. By my opinion future release NAV 2016 will works excellent on Windows 10. Today, Microsoft officially publish the same information, NAV 2016 is compatible with Windows 10. In the same article, we can see that older NAV versions have some problems on Windows 10, but by my opinion not big. You can find more about it in my older post, but Microsoft says it will be corrected in cumulative updates in October, but only for NAV 2015, NAV 2013 R2 and NAV 2013.

Problems with NAV on Upgraded Windows 10

In last few days, I’ve got a lot of comments about problems of NAV usage on Windows 10. Almost all or just all these problems are connected with situation when you have not installed Windows 10 from the scratch. These problems are on upgraded Windows 10 from some older version. I still not check about reasons for these problems, but they obviously exist.

I will try to check all these reasons in following days, but currently you can use this info to see how to solve these problems. Thanks to Francisco Bedolla for this article.

Which NAV versions can run on Windows 10

Today is the big day for Windows 10. As of today, Windows 10 is officially released and available for download. This is about Windows, but where is Microsoft Dynamics NAV here?

Last few months I have tested NAV 2016 (in the beginning it was NAV ‘Corfu’) on Windows 10. Everything works perfect and you will see it very soon (in few following months) if you are not part of TAP or ACE program.

But, I didn’t test older NAV versions but¬†it is very interesting and very important topic. But, my fellow blogger and NAV MVP Erik Hougaard has already tested it and wrote awesome blog post. You will see that the oldest NAV version available on Windows 10 is NAV 5.0, similar as Windows 8 and 7. But, I’m advising you to read complete post and you will for surely enjoy it. Thank you Erik, really good analysis.
