Hands On With MDGP 2018 RTM: Download the Installation Media

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM has now been released. In this series of posts, I will be stepping through the installation of Microsoft Dynamics GP and additional products and then will move on to taking a look at the new functionality which has been introduced.

The series index for this series of posts is here and will automatically update as posts go live.

The installation media is now available for download from Microsoft PartnerSource and CustomerSource (relevant login required).

The download process is now cross browser compatible with the retirement, a while ago now, of the ActiveX control which used to be required. The download is now just performed using standard browser protocols.

The file is approximately 1.6 GB in size.

Microsoft are currently working on GP Next and this is your opportunity to help shape the future functionality using Microsoft Connect. I would recommend you use that site to request features or enhancements which you would like to have included in Dynamics GP.

I’m about to drive home from client site, so I can’t get my hands on it for another 7 hours or so 🙁
