Hands on with the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release: Install .NET prerequisite

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis 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.

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:

  • Offline install on Windows.
  • Offline install on Windows Server.
  • The above articles are for older versions of Windows Server and Windows, but the process is exactly the same on current versions.

    ClassicPress plugins from azurecurve

    ClassicPress PluginsI created this blog in June 2011 with WordPress and for a couple of years I used plugins created by other people. However, as I started looking for more advanced functionality, I found that there were either no plugins which did what I wanted or, at best, did most of what I wanted, but not everything or things I didn’t like.

    I’d worked in PHP previously (including writing my own MVC framework), and decided that I would have a go at writing my own WordPress plugins; by December 2018, I had a library of 25 WordPress plugins which are in the WordPress Plugin Repository.

    In November 2018, I started looking at ClassicPress, a hard fork of WordPress, as a way of avoiding the new Gutenberg editor introduced in WordPress. In March 2019, I started rewriting the plugins specially for ClassicPress.

    Code was improved, security enhanced and new functionality added; in addition, I also wrote several new plugins just for ClassicPress. All of my plugins for ClassicPress are listed below; clicking a tile will take you to my Development site which has details of the plugin:

    Microsoft Dynamics GP Compatibility page updated for Fall 2020 release

    Microsoft Dynamics GPI created a GP Compatibility page a while ago to show the compatibility of Microsoft Dynamics GP with the various versions of SQL Server, Windows Server and Windows as a quick reference.

    I’ve updated it now for the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2002 Release, based on the system requirements documents.

    The page is accessible from the GP Resources menu along with a number of other pages or external links containing useful information on Microsoft Dynamics GP.
