Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 was released on the 2nd October. In this series of posts, I'll be going hands on and installing the majority of the components; some of them, such as Analysis Cubes for Excel, which are little used, I won't be covering.
The series index will automatically update as posts go-live in this series.
Before Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2, or any of the related additional products, can be installed, there is one prerequisite which cannot be handled by the installer process. This is the .NET Framework 3.5 feature which is installed using the Add Roles and Features Wizard available via Server Manager on Windows Server or using Turn Windows features on or off accessible via Program and Features on Windows.
If the PC or server you're planning to install Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM onto, has an Internet connection, then the .NET can be installed simply by using the wizard. However, if, for whatever reason, you don't have an Internet connection available, the install process isn't quite that smooth.
On both server and PC you can do an offline install and I have blogged about this several years ago:
Both of the above posts were for previous versions of Windows, but both are still relevant for the later versions.
