  • Manju,

    Sorry to hear you are running into this. This is a product defect in our GP provider.  Right now the workaround would be to upgrade the reports using a beta version of Management Reporter. We realize this is a critical issue and we are looking to release a fix in the near future to resolve.

    Defect 460705 – Migration Wizard error Windows Authentication is not supported for Microsoft Dynamics GP. This will upgrade reports but account numbers will not be migrated.

  • I just experienced the same thing migrating the current FW company so I could have demo data for my clients. I am thankful for this post to know that I didn't do something wrong using the data migration wizard.

    My question is if they know it's broken, then why not pull the download from the release page? Or at least post a Critical Message below the download? (Rhetorical question) Thanks again for your post.

  • Hi,

    Has this been resolved yet?   I see Service Pack 1 is out.  It mentions something about authentication but not sure if this exact issue got resolved.

  • Yes this has been fixed. You can download SP1 here:
