    Hi Ian,
    We have successfully deployed the Business Analyzer stand alone app from gp 2015 and before, do you have any issues using the companion services and the Windows Store BA app? BA is working fine from inside GP but can’t seem to get it working from the app, and 2016 no longer includes the stand-alone installer.

      Hi Shaun,

      To be honest, I’ve not done anything with BA for quite a while.
