The quick way to register Integration Manager

I’m working on an upgrade at a client from GP 2010 to GP 2015. Part of this involves upgrading Integration Manager to the newest version.  As I opened IM the first time on a new install, I am reminded of what a pain in the butt it is to manually put the reg keys in each workstation.

I started reading an old installation document to update it, a document that was written by someone else for their GP 2010 installs.  It struck me that many people still don’t know there is a faster way to register Integration Manager on every machine, instead of having registration keys handy to cut and paste into each installed workstation. The instructions include the keys and the steps to put new keys in on each installation.

Part 1 of getting ready to go this year is arranging for roaming. For those Canadian fans reading this, here is what I did this year. I’ll post at the end how it worked out.

Pet Peeves

There are tons of situations where I find I have to follow up with people in my job.  That’s the nature of my Type A personality I suppose, as well as the nature of managing different clients and projects. The truth is: I hate following up, I hate having to follow up, because I have a vision of a perfect world where people are considerate of your requests and time and they are proactively keeping you in the loop. Sorry, I think I just had a daydream there… ya, right…

Here are a handful of things that drive me crazy. I’m not perfect, and I’m quite sure I’m guilty of some of them, but I work very hard at communicating regularly with my clients, and I feel like I’m the exception to the rule.
