Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R1: Downloading The Media

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 7 Comments  ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe first step to installing Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R1 is to download the media. Sounds simple doesn’t it?

Yeah, not so much. Microsoft promised the software would be generally available on 1st May, but I checked late last night UK time and nothing was there.

I checked again this morning and still nothing.

Until I checked David Musgrave’s blog and found he had been supplied a direct link by someone at Microsoft.

While Dynamics GP 2016 R1 was downloading, I did a little investigating and I think the reason it doesn’t show up for me is that PartnerSource presents itself as UK for me, whereas the link supplied to David was a northamerican one.

Thinking back I had similar problems when Dynamics GP 2015 came out and I couldn’t find the link on PartnerSource or CustomerSource. That time around I amended the 2013 in the link to 2015 and it worked; this time changing it to 2016 did not work.

Hopefully, Microsoft will get this sorted out to so the downloads for Dynamics GP 2016 are available via the UK sites.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 RTM can be downloaded here.

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 1 Comment  ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPPam Misialek announced the release date of Microsoft Dynamics GP on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog yesterday: it is expected to be generally available on the 1st of May 2016.

Microsoft Dynamics GP includes the new HTML5 web client which will be compatible across multiple browsers and devices like iPads and Android tablets.

New Odata connections will be available for Power BI as well as new features requested by the Dynamics GP Community.

There will be posts on the new features starting soon which I will be reposting (as I normally do) with a little commentary on each one.

So hopefully on 1/5/2016 we’ll be able to get our hands on Dynamics GP 2016; good timing as I’m just coming back from holiday then.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 Now Available

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 10 Comments  ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft appear to have snuck this one out on the quiet, as I haven’t seen any announcements.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 is now available to download from CustomerSource (login required).

It has a release date of 29/05/2015 so it looks to have been released on Friday. I wish I had known about it as I could have spent time over the weekend taking a look. Unfortunately, I am away for work until Saturday afternoon and then the neighbours have their 40th wedding anniversary party so it may be a while until I can download it.

I’ll be trying to download it from the hotel. But unless the hotel Wi-Fi is far better than I expect, you will have to take a look for me and report back.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Now Available

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 3 Comments  ● 

After what felt like a really long wait, but in reality was to the announced timeline, 19th December 2012 saw Microsoft announce the general availability of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog.

As Errol Schoenfish, Director Product Management at Microsoft, said in the announcement, this version of Microsoft Dynamics GP allows customers to access it either via the traditional desktop client or, at no extra license cost, through an innovative new Web Client presented via Silverlight in Microsoft Internet Explorer. I think the web client is a really good addition to GP with the interface looking very clean and modern and means whether the user is in the office, at home or on the road, they can access information when they need it and in a web client which has the same structure as the familiar desktop client.

In addition to the Web Client, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 has seen the addition of more than 120 new features and capability enhancements to the already rich and comprehensive business management functionality; a sample of the new features can be seen in the Microsoft announced Feature of the Day.
