Before continuing with the configuration, it is best to ensure that port 135 is blocked on the firewall as this port being open can cause the configuration to hang.

A check will be done of the Dynamics GP setup to ensure all currencies have an ISO code defined and that a Functional Currency has been defined for all companies.

To do your own check of the functional currency setup, you can run the script in this post.

My system has passed the currency ISO check, but failed the Functional Currency Verification check. This is because I have two companies of which only one, Fabrikam, has been configured. I will only be deploying web services to the Fabrikam sample company so despite the fail flag I am okay to proceed:

System Setup

Select the companies to which the Web Services should be installed; Shift can be used to select a range and Ctrl to select several from a non-continuous range:
