Add-In Initialization Error when launching Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 - Follow up

If you read my previous article on some table open operation issues I was faced with at a client, you know by now that it's important to have the proper writer permissions on the local %temp% folder. What I did not mention in that article was an issue we were also facing with the new Dynamics Online Services application.

Upon launching Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 we were also receiving an add-in initialization error as shown below:

Add-In Initalization Error

Since last month I wrote an article about this same issue, I wanted to make sure I kept this topic separated from the table open operation issues, even though they are directly related by the solution. As it turned out, writing permissions (or the lack thereof) on the %temp% folder caused the Dynamics Online Services application to fail as well with an add-in initialization error message. This error popped up a large window (shown above) detailing the nature of the problem. However, after re-enabling access to the %temp% folder the error no longer presented itself -- Another one bites the dust!

Until next post!
