What You Need to Know About Microsoft FRx Support for Microsoft Dynamics GP


Email | Print

We probably don’t need to tell you again, but Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 is coming out soon and now with the beta version available, more and more people are asking us about the need to migrate from FRx to Management Reporter. We caught wind of a few important dates in terms of support for FRx so you won’t feel the need to scramble…

The regular support for FRx version 6.7 Service Pack 12 is the last service pack /release and the end date for that support was 10/12/12.  Extended support however will be available for 5 years until October 2017.  Extended support will include support assistance but does not include development, hot fixes and/or services pack releases unless a major security issue is uncovered (of which is determined by Microsoft).  In addition, FRx will not be supported on 64 bit operating system and is only available up to Microsoft Dynamics GP2010.  FRx will not work with GP2013.

After hearing this information, we hope it helps you identify next steps. Whether you’re upgrading from an older version of Microsoft Dynamics GP or waiting to upgrade to GP 2013 once it’s released, you have reporting options. Just make sure you know what they are.

If you have questions about your reporting needs within Microsoft Dynamics GP, please contact us at Sherwood Systems: http://www.sherwood.com/contact/.

    Forgive a question from the small-company world of accounting: How does this compare to Quickbooks?
