Thanks & Regards


  1. Find a way to accomplish your task using features supported by the Web Client.

  2. Don’t use the Web Client.


addins for usage with the webclient, follow:

to view any page in the webclient you only need the number of the page, e.g.

develope your own client app using nav webservices.


to get the search window in the webclient (so can search for and open any page):
goto folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\70\Web Client
there open the file web.config in admin mode.
search for “”. change the value to true.
restart the nav webclient in the iis admin.

for special customization (only for web developer pros):
add/change the settings in section in the web.config

Thank you so much for your input Jonathan…
