If I had to pick only two settings for my dex.ini file they would have to be the following:

1) EmpLookUp=2

This setting make the employee card lookup default to the employees name rather than by id.


2) SQLLoginCompatibilityMode=TRUE

While I do not normally use this setting on my Production Servers it is almost a must have for all my test, development, and other non-production servers. This setting tells Microsoft Dynamics GP to use the legacy login methods. For information on why Microsoft Dynamics GP encrypt passwords see this post ==> Click Here.

Go to there post to get the code about updating your test databases and changing your users passwords.
