The pop-ups seemed to intensify when the GP 2010 main desktop becomes unfocused. The following is a sample of the URL that would show in IE address bar for a pop-up window (my voice account has been crossed out for security purposes).
Interestingly enough, the URL contains a parameter (se) which value happens to be interestingly enough popup. A few days aback, the Connect content changed on the Microsoft side to a static content and there were no rotating banners anymore which in turn ceased the IE pop ups.
//These are needed to control the interface
ConnectsourceURLs = "https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=152456";
ConnectsourceURLParams = "&product=GPRoleCenter&version=11.00.0218.000&roleid=4050&voiceaccount=XXXXXXX&country=US&locale=EN-US";
ConnenctCompanyParam = encodeURIComponent("Fabrikam, Inc.");
ConnenctRoleParam = encodeURIComponent("IT Operations Manager");
ConnectsourceURLs = ConnectsourceURLs + ConnectsourceURLParams + "&company=" + ConnenctCompanyParam + "&role=" + ConnenctRoleParam;
ConnectsourceURLs = ConnectsourceURLs.replace(/ /g, "%20");
// Initialize the iframe
if (ConnectsourceURLs.length > 0)
With this understanding, I checked Internet Explorer's configuration and realized that the Pop-up Blocker was disabled. By enabling IE's Pop-up Blocker feature and restarting Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, the Internet Explorer pop-ups immediately ceased. Nonetheless, the question remains: Why is Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 Connect feature raising popups to begin with?
If you have had to deal with this, just enable your browser's Pop-up Blocker.
Until next post!
