Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2: Create Installation Package
November 9th, 2018 by
Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 was released on the 2nd October. In this series of posts, I’ll be going hands on and installing the majority of the components; some of them, such as Analysis Cubes for Excel, which are little used, I won’t be covering.
The series index will automatically update as posts go-live in this series.
In an early post of this series, I installed the Microsoft Dynamics GP client; while installing the client isn;t complicated, it is easy to get the wrong features selected during the installation. There is a way of building an installation package which automates the selection of langauges, features and paths.
Creating an installation package is done via the setup utility; select Create Installation Package from under the Install heading:
Enter the Installation Location and click Next:
Make sure the Country/Region Selection is correct and click Next:
Select all of the features which are to be installed and click Next:
Enter the full Instance name in the SQL Server Name field and confirm the System Database Name and click Next:
Set the folder location of the Forms and Reports dictionaries and click Next:
Set the folder location of the OLE Notes and Letters files and click Next:
Click Install to start the installation:
Once the installation package creation has finioshed, click Exit:
The installation package is run by double clicking on the created exe file; the Dymamics GP client with all options selected while creating the installation package, thereby removing the risk of errors when installing many clients.
