NAV 2013, NAV 2009 R2, NAV 2009 SP1 & NAV 2009 on Same Machine with Same Ports


Hi all,

As discussed in my most of the Earlier post when we install NAV 2013, it is the best practice to Uninstall all
previous version that are installed.

Reason - When we install multiple versions of Navision after 2009 and try to run the object from the object designer it gives us an error message.

Today we will be discussing the extended part of the Posts -
1) NAV 2009 SP1 and R2 on Same Machine
2) NAV 2009 SP1 & R2 on same machine with Issue Resolution

As new version of NAV, i.e NAV 2013 have been released so we need to change some of the setting.

Port Sharing in NAV 2013

Hi all,

After installing NAV 2013, the Port 7046 is blocked for NAV 2013 Management services.

Earlier till NAV 2009 R2 we can create services for NAV 2009 and NAV 2009 SP1 on the same port by enabling TCP Port Sharing service.

But when we try same after installing NAV 2013 it gives an error.

The Breakpoint Already Exist...


Hi all,

Just a quick post.

Most of time we get a error message "The BreakPoint Already Exist" Error Message in Navision.

The Error message is due to - "During testing the process by Technical Consultant we put breakpoints to test the value at that particular instance.

One of my user reported this error which he was getting during execution of Job in Event Viewer.

So now how can i remove all the breakpoints that i have applied, as i might have applied into multiple objects into multiple places.

NAV 2013 Upgrade Part IV - SQL Migration.


Hi all,

While Release of NAV 2013, we had some new things but some old things became obsolete and cannot be used with this version of Navision.

One of them that effect most of the customer is Support to NATIVE Database. So today we will discuss about Native to SQL Migration which is one of the steps during upgrade to NAV 2013.

NAV 2013 Upgrade Part III - Data Upgrading.

Hi all,

As per agenda we need to discuss the data upgrade in NAV 2013. The process is similar to what used to be till NAV 2009 R2 but with some changes.

Let's start the process.

Remember - 
1) You can only upgrade a database to NAV 2013 from NAV 2009 SP1 / R2 SQL Only.
2) The Synchronization of users with SQL Server is no more required.

You are not authorized to sign in. Verify that you are using valid credentials and that you have been setup as a user in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

Hi all,

while creating a database in NAV 2013 or during upgrade we sometime forget to add our own windows login into the database.

Result of same is that we are unable to access the database anymore.

Till NAV 2009 R2 we used to add the login from the Native Client but with NAV 2013 user creation have also being moved to RTC Client.

So it was a tedious task to repeat activities again :(.

Below listed steps will delete all the existing users from the database but if you don't want to do that and just want to add your login in the database please follow the related post.

If you are using NAV 2013 R2 or Higher Please refer this article.
