Before installing any of the Microsoft Dynamics GP components, you need to make sure the system requirements are met. On top of this there is also some prerequisites which need to be met before the Microsoft Dynamics GP client or other components can be installed.
Most of these prerequisites can be handled by installer process, there is one which cannot; 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 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.

This does mean that if you are on any version of Dynamics GP 2018 or on the 2019 Release, you will need to apply the 2020 Release update; a fix for Dynamics GP 2016 will also be released, but the method of approach is still being determined.
