Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2: Web Client First Run

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 was released at the end of May. As I mentioned at the time, I was away from home for work and rather busy otherwise so this series of posts has been somewhat delayed.

However, I am now getting my hands on GP 2015 R2 and thought I would do my usual set of posts on the installation of the various components and also the usage of the new functionality. This is going to be quite a long series of posts, so keep checking back regularly.

The eighth post, overs the first run of the web client. In this case I am logging into the web client on the server it is installed onto, but on a live system you would need to repeat these steps on each client machine.

Launch your choice of Silverlight-enabled web browser, I am using Internet Explorer, and enter the path of the web client, which will be something like http://2015r2.2015r2.azurecurve.localdomain/GP.

Enter your Windows Domain User Name and Password:

IE: GP Web Client Login

If you do not have Silverlight already installed you will be prompted to install it. Click the Click now to install button:

IE: To view this content, please install Microsoft Silverlight

Click Leave this page to confirm the move to the Silverlight install page:

Windows Internet Explorer: Are you sure you want to leave this page?

In the IE gold bar, click the Run button to run the Silverlight_x64.exe installer:

Do you want to run or save Silverlight_x64.exe (12.4 MB) from silverlight.dlservice.microsoft.com?

Once the download has finished, click the Run button:

Click run to install Silverlight

The Silverlight install window will be displayed: click Install now:

Install Silverlight

Chose whether to enable updates and click Next:

Enable Microsoft Update

Click Close when the installation is confirmed as successful:

Installation successful

Log back into the web client and you will be taken to a Welcome to Microsoft Dynamics GP window which looks very like the one from the desktop client:

Welcome to Microsoft Dynamics GP

Log in, then on the next step select your company and you can use the web client version of GP pretty much the same as you would the desktop client.
