Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 System Requirements Updated to Include Windows 7

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP is scheduled for release today, so make sure you review the system requirements to ensure your hardware and software are both compatible with the new version.

Back in July the system requirements for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM were released and, at that time, Windows 7 was not supported with any edition, but this version of Windows is now being officially supported with Dynamics GP 2018 RTM.

The system (minimum) requirements for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 are now available on CustomerSource (login required):

There are a few versions of OS and software which are not supported with Dynamics GP 2018; the following are not supported in any edition (e.g. Professional, Standard or Enterprise):

  • Windows Server 2008
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2012

System Requirements For Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 Now Available

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe System Requirements for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 are now available from CustomerSource (login required).

The stand out items for me is that support has been dropped for several older versions of Windows, SQL Server and Office:

  1. Windows:
    • Windows XP all editions
    • Windows Vista all editions
    • Windows Server 2003 all editions
  2. SQL Server:
    • 2008 all editions (including R2)
  3. Office:
    • Office 2007

The only surprise on the above list is that some of the software listed as no longer supported was also listed as no longer supported with Dynamics GP 2013; in fact only SQL Server 2008 is new to the list.

Apart from the above retired software, the recommendations look pretty much the same as Dynamics GP 2013; Windows 8.1 and SQL Server 2014 have been added as supported.
