Over the last few posts, I’ve covered the installation of the Web Client Runtime, added the IIS role, created a self-signed certificate, installed the Web Client, ran the Configuration Wizard, and installed the GP Resource Web Cache. Now it is time to run the Web Client for the first time to ensure required components are installed on a client; I’m installing a new demo machine so I know one component won’t be installed.
Navigate to the address if the site hosting the Web Client. In the case when you have a self-signed security certificate (which I would only advise for demo or test systems) you will be presented with a warning that the site may not be safe; this is the one time I will recommend to someone that they go against the browser’s advice and click Continue to this website (like my credit card company, MBNA, who have a site with an invalid certificate, going on for six years now, and have the security team advise people to accept the invalid certificate and proceed);

I started reviewing Leslie Vail’s book, Developing Microsoft Dynamics GP Business Applications,which was published at the end of December by Packt Publishing, a few weeks ago. To do this review I decided to take a read through and complete all the examples she gives on developing an application as I’ve only had very limited experience with Dexterity;
Today I’m taking a look at Chapter 5 which covers sanScript and how to add it to windows to enable the required functionality. The key topics to be covered are:
- Introduction to sanScript
- Scrolling Windows

I recently had three e-copies to giveaway of Leslie Vail’s book, Developing Microsoft Dynamics GP Business Applications.
The ebook giveway was in association with the publisher of the book, Packt Publishing.
Thanks very much all who entered, but unfortunately there could only be three winners who have now been contacted by Packt on the email address supplied with their entries in the giveaway.
The winners are (in no particular order, beyond ladies first);
- Jennifer H
- Bruce E
- Scott S
For those unfortunate not to win, you can purchase Leslie’s book either direct from Packt Publishing or via Amazon:
Thanks again to those who entered.
With the Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Client installed and configured the Web Client is now available for use. However, there is one final additional product which can be installed from the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 setup utility and that is the GP Web Resource Cache which improves performance by enabling web client caching.
On a multi-machine deployment the GP Web Resource Cache should be installed on each Session Host machine.
Launch the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 setup utility and under Additional products select GP Web Resource Cache;
Following on relatively quickly from Leslie Vail’s new Microsoft Dynamics GP book, , available from Packt Publishing, comes Mark Polino with Building Dashboards with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and Excel 2013.
This book will teach you how to build a dashboard using Excel 2013 with information from Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013, how to make Excel a true business intelligence tool with charts, sparklines and slicers and show how to utilise PowerPivot’s full potential to create even more complex dashboards;

Okay not actually as confusing as the title suggests but Mark Polino has migrated hs blog from Blogspot to WordPress and now has the address www.DynamicsAccounting.net pointing to the blog so update your bookmarks and go to the new site for his regular updates on happenings in the Dynamics GP community.
Mark has kept a theme very similar to the one on the Blogspot version so you should be able to adapt to the new site and keep up to date without any problems.
It also marks another GP blog using WordPress along with Victoria Yudin, Ian Stewart, Vaidy Mohan, Sivakumar Venkataraman and I.
In the last post, I showed how to install the Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Client; the next step is to run the Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Client Configuration Wizard from the Windows Start menu;
After slacking off a lot in terms of reviewing Leslie Vail’s book Developing Microsoft Dynamics GP Business Applications, which was published at the end of December by Packt Publishing, I’m going to try to get a regular tempo of review posts going. Today I’m here with the review for chapter 4;
This chapter is all about Building the User Interface which Leslie does by getting the reader to build an interface for customer contacts integration and covers:
- Creating base resources
- Creating tables and keys
- Creating forms and windows
- Creating scrolling windows
- Working with window fields
- Completing your windows
So from this chapter I expect to get a good grounding in creating an entirely new window which should look like this:

In this series of posts, I’m taking a look at the steps needed to install the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client. In the previous posts I took a look at installing the Web Client Runtime, adding the IIS Role and a self-signed certificate created. With those steps completed, we can now install the Web Client itself.
This is done from the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 setup utility by selecting Web Client under the Additional Products section;
