Release notes for Object Analyzer, 24. April 2020

What’s new?

Detection of Microsoft faulty W1 conflicts

We are happy to announce that Object Analyzer is now capable of detecting and resolving issues caused by conflicts between W1 and Locale objects on specific NAV/BC versions.

For a customer on Dynamics NAV 2017 DK we noticed an inconsistency in detection of actual fully installed CU level, the root cause for this is because apparently there were some W1 objects that was “not installed”, but this was only the case because the DK object was not up-to-date in the version list build number, so the local object appeared to be installed on a lower Cumulative Update and triggered the specific Cumulative Update to be seen as “Partial Installed” in Object Analyzer.

With the issue resolved, Object Analyzer now shows you the correct fully installed Cumulative Update level, while also giving you information about detected W1 conflicts if any are found on your specific NAV/BC version and locale.

These objects are shown in an easy overview table on your compare result, where you can manually investigate these objects if any conflicting W1 objects are found. This overview also enables you to compare the W1 to the related locale object using our code compare, to check for any missing local updates both in version list but also in the object code.
