Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 RTM Hyper-V Demonstration Image Sets Now Available For Download

Pam Misialek on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog, announced that the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 RTM Hyper-V Demonstration Image Sets are now available for partners to download from PartnerSource (login required).

These image sets are the full RTM versions of the software and contain the following:

  • Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 RTM with Web Client deployed
  • Management Reporter 2012 with Web Viewer deployed
  • Office 2013 with demo dashboards installed

It is a set of three Hyper-V images which needs both A and B to be up and running with a minimum of 2GB RAM assigned to each (although as with all VMs the more RAM they have the quicker they will run) and need to be able to ping each other (the 2010 R2 instructions, on the download page, detail how to do this). Image C is only required if Lync is being demonstrated.

The full post from Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP contains extended information and warnings of minor issues with the images to watch out for.
