To create a new company, launch ,em>Gp Utilities and log in using the sa account:
To add the sample company, launch GP Utilities and log in using the sa account:
With the client installed, the next step is to deploy the system database. Do this by launching GP Utilities from the Windows Start menu and log in using the sa account:
One you have the media downloaded and the .NET Framework 3.5 installed, we can now install the first client. Do this by extracting the download media and running the setup.exe. This will launch the Microsoft Dynamics GP Bootstrapper Setup which will install the prerequisites:
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.
However, for both server and PC you can do an offline install and I have blogged about this several years ago:
The above articles are for older versions of Windows Server and Windows, but the process is exactly the same on current versions.
In this series, I will be using the full installation download as I will be doing a fresh install.
There are not many changes to the system requirements for the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 Release are not much, if any, different from the prior release; the system requirements for Dynamics GP and the Web Components can be viewed at the following links:
The eighth, and final, new feature from the top user requests, is copy and paste from Excel in the web client. This has not worked since 2015 R2 with fixes promised always in the next version.
Again it has been included as a feature in the October 2019 release, but while it allows you to get the data from Ececl into the GL Transaction Entry window, but is instead an import. To import the journal lines in the web client, click the Paste button and then click Choose file:
You can browse to select a file to import as journal lines. The format is the same as when pasting in the desktop client.
It works, but it is not as nice and easy as the copy and paste possible in the desktop client and is not a copy and paste despite the announcement.
The seventh new feature from the top user requests, is the storage of the user ID who last modified an item record; this field has also been made available to SmartList:
Being able to see the last user to amend an item is a good addition and it is nice to see it made available within SmartList.
The sixth top requested enhancement is the availability of a column in the Items SmartList showing if an item is active or inactive:
I was a little surprised to see this announced as a feature as I had assume this field was already available, but it seems that when an Inactive flag was added in Dynamics GP 2013 RTM, that was as far as the change went. Extra visibility is always a good thing, so nice to see this added.
