To deliver your extracted application dictionary, first convert your application into a chunk dictionary using Dexterity Utilities. When you install your application with Microsoft Dynamics GP, a chunk dictionary is “unchunked” and becomes a regular application dictionary. As it unchunks, the chunk dictionary performs two necessary functions:
There are two methods of creating a chunk dictionary. The simplest and recommended method is to create a single chunk dictionary using the Auto-Chunk utility. The section Using the Auto-Chunk utility explains how to use this utility.
The second method of creating a dictionary chunk uses the Create Chunk Dictionary utility. The main advantage of this utility is that you can break up your application into several smaller chunk dictionaries that will be merged into one application dictionary during installation. This is especially useful if your installation program doesn’t support file segmenting.
