This post is part of the Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release series where I am going hands on with the new version of Microsoft Dynamics GP. One of the main integration tools used with Microsoft Dynamics GP is eConnect; however, before eConnect can be installed, there are two prerequisites which need to be installed.
I’ve posted about these prerequisites before, so I’ll link back to the original posts; the version of Windows Server may have changed, but the process is the same.
The first prerequisite, is to set the service account as a local administrator on the server. Without doing this, the eConnect services will not start correctly.
Secondly, you need to install the MSMQ Triggers Windows feature. Without this, the Incomging/Outgoing eConnect queues cannot be installed.
Once these two prerequisites are met, you’ll be ready to install eConnect on the server.
