I used to work on Navision 4.0, 5.0 and 2009 two years> During this time, I have been using the classic database. I left Navsion for 5 years and now I want to go back to it. I undertand the classic version is discontinued. Now I am trying to install the RTC in a demo database so that I can start learning, but I don't even find the installation file and how to install the RTC client in a demo database for learning. Can anyone help me on how to get the software and how to install it for learning purpose?
(Subject changed by admin, was: How to install RTC with a demo database?)
If you have a NAV 2009 Client and a developer license for that version, I don't see any problem, but that version was a bridge between two technologies, and I remember it as a headache (for instance, when I was trying to manage files). There are a lot of things that are changed from NAV 2009 from a developer point of view.
So what will be your advice as to the best way forward, bearing in mind that i don't have a developer license for versions higher than 2009. How can i learn the higher versions without having their developer license? The demo database does not allow you to create new objects and its use is limited to just browsing through the database? I don't have the designer option in the RTC version and don't know how to do the development in RTC.
The answer is simple, you don't - without a proper developer license you won't be able to do much. Besides from that - I makes no sense at all, just to try along. You have to work at a Microsoft Partner or start as a partner yourself - and then get a developer license (but that is going to cost you quite a lot of money). So there is no shortcut to Dynamics NAV - you have to use proper channels, Microsoft did it this way, because there is no need to "play around" with real companies data with people that do not have enough knowledge of Posting, ERP and experience.
I disagree, learning to code in Dynamics NAV 2009 is pretty much a waste of time.
- The Development Environment is Visual Studio Code,- On BC you cannot change a single line of standard code- You have to learn A LOT about the new functions and all the code that has been moved.- New functions like OnBeforeInsert and OnAfterInsert and a zillion other things.And finally and the most important part, you dont learn Dyn 365 BC without proper training.. Training is essential!
Thanks Palle. I think i will stick to Dynamic Nav 2009 and lower for now since that is the developers license i have. If i get a job at a partner company or end user, i will take a training on the BC.
Wise choice if you ask me, if you wan't to be more "interesting" for a partner to employ you, then you try to learn and get the a certificate for Microsoft SQL Server or learn a lot about Microsoft Power Bi (those two roles are becoming more and more necessary for Dynamics Partners to have).
Thanks Palle for these advice. I will do just that.
