Client Version Tracking reports the version information of all dexterity products installed on each GP client. Use Client Version Tracking to ensure all GP clients are up to date and have the same version installed of all GP modules and 3rd Party Products. It also records the pathnames to shared forms and reports dictionaries on each client, so you can see if any client is not pointed to the correct shared forms and reports dictionaries.
Client Version Tracking can be configured to prevent a GP client from logging-in to GP if any of its modules are out of date with a specified Version Control Server.
Navigation: Tools >> Setup >> Company >> Setup GP PowerPack

After enabling Client Version Tracking the system will begin recording the client version information each time a GP client logs into GP. It will record the module name and version information for each dexterity product installed on the GP client.
You can designate one GP client configuration as the Version Control Server (VCS). This does not have to be a “server”, it is just one GP client that will be the source of the “current” configuration. When a VCS is specified the Show Conflicts with Server box will be enabled.
Set as Version Control Server: Use the Computer dropdown list to select a Computer. This will enable the Set as Version Control Server checkbox. Mark the checkbox to set the selected computer as the VCS.
Show Conflicts with Server: when a VCS is specified, marking this box will refresh the window to show only modules on GP clients where the version information is not the same as the VCS. All module information will be displayed for the VCS so that any conflicts can be compared to the VCS information.
Lockout Client w/Version Conflict: when a VCS is specified, marking this box will prevent clients with conflicting version information from logging-in to GP. During an attempted log-in Client Version Tracking will validate the client information against the VCS. If any conflicts are found the user will receive a warning about the version conflict, and GP will close.
Expand the scrolling window to see pathname information for each product. The pathname is stored in the Dynamics.set file on each GP client, and tells GP where to locate shared forms and reports dictionaries. If a client is not pointed to the correct forms and reports dictionary location, the user may not see the same windows/reports that other users see.
