December 22nd, 2016 by

Microsoft Dynamics GPWith the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2 it’s time for a series of “hands on” posts where I go through the installation of all of it’s components; the index for this series can be found here.

There is a problem with this website

Enter the User Name (including Domain NETBIOS) and Password of a user account which has been added to the Domain Group for web client users configured for use during the web client installation and click Sign in:

If you’re using a web client only user, change the Authentication drop down, otherwise enter your User ID and Password.

Once logged in, I got the sample company warning to which I clickedOK and was then able to use the web client:

Not having to mess around with Silverlight is good; the new HTML 5 web client (introduced in 2015 R2) is generally a lot better than the old Silverlight one; with the added bonus of being cross browser compatible.

As a side note, if you have the sample company installed and don’t want to see the warning message, you can disable it.
