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):

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:
