Upgrading Management Reporter 2012: Upgrade the Server Components

Microsoft Dynamics GPIn this short series of posts, I’m going to take a look at upgrading an installation of Management Reporter 2012 to the latest Rollup. The series index can be found here.

The first step in upgrading Management Reporter is to update the server components. To do this download the latest Rollup from either PartnerSource or CustomerSource. Run the downloaded MSI and specify a path to extract the files into (by default the files will be extracted into the same folder as the MSI, so I typically create myself a folder called MR and extract the files into that:

Choose Directory For Extracted Files

From the extracted files, run the setup.exe:

Windows Explorer - Application Tools

In the Management Reporter Setup, under Install, click on Management Reporter Server:

Management Reporter Server Setup

A message confirming the version being upgraded from and to will be displayed; click Next to proceed:

Management Reporter Server Setup

On the Ready to Install Update step click Install to begin the install of the server components:

Management Reporter Server Setup - Ready to Install Update

After the server component update has finished, a confirmation step will be displayed where you can choose to start the Configuration Console upon clicking the Finish button:

Management Reporter Server Setup - Completed Management Reporter setup
