This is a a pretty niche post. Hopefully this problem only exists in a specific set of circumstances, in Business Central v13, but we wasted enough hours of our lives chasing it down yesterday that I thought I’d share it.
In this terrible period where COVID-19 is changing our days (and our life) and where homeworking is becoming a must, I think it could be helpful for some of you to know that Microsoft has opened the preview of a nice Visual Studio Live Share feature.

There are no doubts that Dynamics 365 Business Central has extremely changed the partner’s habits in creating and distributing their ERP solutions. Dynamics NAV was a fantastic ERP, with an extremely high adoption, global distribution, and a quick learning curve for customers and partners.

Manually deselecting individual tests turning of the Run field, was, euphemistically said, not the most meaningful thing to do.
