Microsoft 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:
If you do not have Silverlight already installed you will be prompted to install it. Click the Click now to install button:
Click Leave this page to confirm the move to the Silverlight install page:
In the IE gold bar, click the Run button to run the Silverlight_x64.exe installer:
Once the download has finished, click the Run button:
The Silverlight install window will be displayed: click Install now:
Chose whether to enable updates and click Next:
Click Close when the installation is confirmed as 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:
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.
