IM - "You must close all Microsoft Dynamics GP windows in order to run an integration"

A few weeks aback, I co-presented a deep dive session with my partner in crime, David Musgrave, at Microsoft Dynamics Convergence Atlanta 2011 DDGP03 Microsoft Dynamics GP Customization & Integration Tools Review - see Microsoft Dynamics Convergence Atlanta 2011: Day 3 for more on what happened that day.

At the end of this session, someone approached me with the old age question, "Why when I run IM integrations I receive the error 'You must close all Microsoft Dynamics GP windows in order to run an integration'?". The error looks somewhat like this:


Integration Manager error
Typically, Integration Manager will check to make sure all windows in Microsoft Dynamics GP are closed prior to beginning the execution of the integration. If all windows are found to be closed, the integration will proceed as normal, else you will receive the above error. This internal checked is controlled via a flag in the key file, Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.IntegrationManager.ini.

To be able to execute an integration with opened Microsoft Dynamics GP window, you can make the following changes to the Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.IntegrationManager.ini key file (with NOTEPAD):

AllowOpenWindows=True

The default value for this flag is False.

Until next post!
