Title:Customise the Microsoft Dynamics GP Splash Screen

David MeegoEven though support for a splash screen was added to Dexterity v3.00, Great Plains Dynamics v5.50 was the first version to include a splash.bmp file and Microsoft Business Solutions - Great Plains v8.00 was the last version to include a splash.bmp file. This uncompressed bitmap was displayed as a splash screen when the application was launched.  A number of partners had worked out that the splash.bmp file could be customised to add a customer or partner logo, but now the splash.bmp file is not longer used.

What is not common knowledge is that if you copy a splash.bmp file into a Microsoft Dynamics GP v9.00 or v10.00 system, it will still be displayed.

Microsoft Dynamics GP v9.00 did not include a splash.bmp file and does not have a splash screen at startup.  I liked the splash screens and so I created a new splash.bmp for v9.00 based on the v8.00 splash screen but with the new logo (see GP Logos through the years).  After spending the time creating the v9.00 splash screen, I might as well let others use it if they want to.

Microsoft Dynamics GP v10.00 does not include a splash.bmp file, but has a default splash screen built in.  I have grabbed a copy of this splash screen and saved it as splash.bmp.  Now if you include a splash.bmp in the application folder it will be used instead of the default splash screen. I tested this on v10.00 by saving a copy of the same image after turning it upside down. Well, I do live downunder in Australia. 

Splash screen bitmaps files for v5.5, v6.0, v7.0, v7.5, v8.0, v9.0 & v10.0 are attached at the bottom of the article. Just rename the version you want to splash.bmp.
