Open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV RoleTailored Client in Configuration Mode - Part 01

In order to configure a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Profile, administrator should open the profile in the configuration mode. It will allow the admin to remover the unwanted pages, action buttons from the user's interface and make it more user role specific. 

This may sound bit old school to many of the people, but still this will be very useful for new developers, 

There are several ways of doing this, and most famous way of doing it using the command prompt. 

In the command prompt, navigate to the root of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client. In order to do that you can use below command (example)
 cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\90\RoleTailored Client  

Now to open up the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows Client in the configuration mode for a specific user profile, use below command
 Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe -configure -profile:"profileid"  

Replace the "profileid" with the Profile ID you want to configure. 

Once you press Enter, Dynamics NAV will open with the related profile. Admin can now do all the configurations and close the Dynamics NAV Windows Client. 

In my next blog post I will discuss about the other way of opening the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows Client in Config mode. 

Please provide your feedback with a comment.
