This post is part of the Hands on with the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release series where I am hands on with the newly released Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release.
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 and they haven’t changed, so I’ll link back to the original posts; while 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.
