Temporary fix to 'Your program License doesn't permit support maximum N non-demonstration companies'

Introduction:
While I was testing InterCompany Setup, I faced an issue probably a limitation of the CRONUS standard license which comes with standard NAV/ BC On-Premise installations.
Whenever I created new multiple Companies in NAV, I got an error 'Your program License doesn't permit support maximum N non-demonstration companies'.



Pre-requisites:
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2018.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Solution:
I faced this error when I restarted NAV Client after creating a non-evaluation company. Thus, I cannot remove the company from front-end. I tried using Microsoft Documentation and found that it was actually possible (YAY!! 😁). Refer https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics-nav/how-to--delete-companies.
Instead, it kept ruining things more. The Server Instance would stop without any errors and NAV Windows Client would infinitely work trying to connect to the workspace.
Finally, I found that using Windows Powershell with NAV Management module where it was possible to delete the Company from the back-end.

NOTE: 
1. The database shouldn't be in Single user mode.
2. The NAV Server Instance should be in RUNNING state.

Powershell Commands and Outputs:
Recreating the error by creating new companies.
Creating a new Company!

Changing to the new Company!

Importing the NAVAdmin Powershell module which comes in the package when you install NAV/ BC On-Premise.

Getting the list of Companies on the NAV Server Instance using PowerShell

Removing the Company for a particular NAV Server instance

Conclusion:
I tried going into single user mode to delete the company from NAV Windows Client but it didn't work

Clicking on locally hosted service and putting in the credentials configured for NAV 2017 SSO, we get.
Still skeptical when Business Central login into NAV.

2. Business Central App - Reverse compatible with NAV 2017:


Well well well...
Look whose here.
NAV disguised as  Dynamics 365 for Financials.

I think we all agree that Business Central Modern Client is a WebApp version of Busines Central Online. Basically just like browser in an App.
The difference is that it can connect to NAV as it is just like a browser.

3. Does Business Central Modern Client follow DynamicsNAV protocol?:
Well, it simply does not.
It would be amazing  if it did, as it would mean that we could deal with runni…

TIP: Working with changing Field DataTypes and Deleting fields in Business Central

Introduction:
Imagine a scenario where as per the requirements provided by your clients, you have set up the Database structure in NAV/Business Central.
Then comes a requirement in Phase 2 which completely redefines the database structure which was provided by you and you need to delete a few fields in a table and move it to another table.

Pre-requisites:
Microsoft Dynamics NAV
Microsoft Dynamics Business Central

Books & References:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/business-central/dev-itpro/developer/properties/devenv-obsoletestate-property

Solution:
1. In Microsoft Dynamics NAV, there was a flexibility to delete fields, tables, and keys and using  Force-Sync, you can directly delete the field, table, and keys from SQL Database.


2. Whereas in Microsoft Dynamics Business Central, you cannot delete the fields, keys, and tables.
In order to deploy this deleted change, you need to mention this field, table, and keys with Obsolete State Removed.


After you mention the field as…

Enums and Enum Extensions behave differently. They follow a different number se…
