Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2: Install eConnect on Client

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft 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.

I already stepped through the installation of eConnect on the server, but eConnect is also needed on the client in order to use the eConnect adaptors in Integration Manager.

To install eConnect on a client PC, launch the setup utility and select eConnect under the Additional Products header:
