Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R1: Installing the Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 4 Comments  ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPAs of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, Word Templates were introduced as an alternative to the standard reports. The Word templates offer an easier way to format the documents produced from Dynamics GP, such as sales invoices and check remittances. When a new field needs to be added to a Word template, it first needs to be added in Report Writer and then the Word template modified.

To add the field in Word, the Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word needs to be installed. To install it, launch the setup.exe from the download media and select Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word:

Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R1: Running The Desktop Client For The First Time

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 0 Comments  ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPOver the last few posts in this series, we have deployed the system database and Fabrikam sample database and created a company. In this post, I’m going to run the dsesktop client for the first time.

When you find GP in the start menu, you’ll notice that it has anew icon; the same dark blue and white as the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 icon, but now it is a combination bar and line chart.

At this stage you can log into Dynamics GP using either the sa or DYNSA accounts; I used the former, but really should have used the latter:

wfDeployClrAssemblies Error When Deploying The System Database

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 1 Comment  ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is a slight diversion from my Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R1 series, but I am posting it as it came up while I was deploying the system database.

Towards the end of the deployment an error occurred while the wfDeployClrAssemblies was being executed (actually there were three error messages produced):

Microsoft Dynamics GP Utilities: The following SQL Statement produced an error: EXEC wfDeployClrAssemblies

Management Reporter 2012 CU15 Is Now Available

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 1 Comment  ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Dynamics Financial Reporting for Microsoft Dynamics GP has announced the availability of CU15 for Management Reporter 2012. This cumulative up-date contains a few bug fixes as well as some enhancements.

Here’s a summary of the new Management Reporter CU15 features:

  • Improved responsiveness in the Web Viewer.
  • A search bar has been added to search through the current level of the report as in-browser search functions may not always return all results because of the performance changes to improve responsiveness.
  • Printing in the Web Viewer through XPS download.
  • PowerShell module to enable reset of data mart.
  • Added a Turkish (tr-tr) localization.
  • Additional fixes for product defects.
  • The Dynamics Financial Reporting for Microsoft Dynamics GP team will be blogging about the new features in detail soon.

    There are a few new prerequisites which are required for this cumulative update:

    • SQL Server 2012 or higher.
    • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 is also required (when installed this may require a reboot).

    Management Reporter CU15 Release is version 2.12.15000.56; make sure your ERP version is supported by checking the compatibility list.

    The EN-US download for Management Reporter CU15 is here and localised versions will be coming soon.

Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R1: Deploy System Database

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 9 Comments  ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPNow that we have the first client installed, we can deploy the system database. By default the system database is called DYNAMCIS, but i have chosen to use one called D16R1. To deploy the system database, hit the Windows start button, search for and launch GP Utilities.

While I do try to minimise the use of the sa account as it is the SQL Server system administrator account, the initial implementation of Dynamics GP does require its use. So, on the Welcome to Microsoft Dynamics GP Utilities window enter sa in the User ID field and enter the relevant password.

Once done, click OK:

Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R1: Client Installation

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 6 Comments  ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPOnce you have downloaded the installation media, the first step is to install a client. Typically, I will install a client on the SQL Server itself as this can avoid a number of problems, but this time round I did not and instead installed it on the server which will be my terminal server.

Before starting the install from the media, ensure .NET 3.5 has been installed; this can be done via Programs and Features in the Control Panel. If you have an Internet connection, the relevant files will be downloaded or you will need to specify the location of the files (Windows Server or Windows Client.

To install the desktop client, unzip the media and double click on the setup.exe. This will launch the bootstrapper which will install the remaining prerequisites:
