    What about GP2010? Is it supported in Windows 8 Pro?

  4. Hi Fred

    GP 2010 has not been tested for Windows 8 and so is not showing on the System Requirements page. So it is not officially supported.…/MDGP2010_System_Requirements

    That said, I have Dynamics GP versions 10.0, GP 2010 and GP 2013 running on my Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 machines.
