Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2: Install Web Services

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 was released at the end of May. As I mentioned at the time, I was away from home for work and rather busy otherwise so this series of posts has been somewhat delayed.

However, I am now getting my hands on GP 2015 R2 and thought I would do my usual set of posts on the installation of the various components and also the usage of the new functionality. This is going to be quite a long series of posts, so keep checking back regularly.

In the past, we used the Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP mainly for integration, but since Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 introduced Workflow 2.0 we have been installing it for more and more clients.

In this, the fifteenth post of the Hands on with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 series, I’m going to step through the installation process and following it up in the next couple of posts with the configuration and verification of the installation.
