Upgrading to GP 2013 ?

Kelly Youells and her team at Microsoft Dynamics Support and Services blog, have just started a fantastic series of posts - Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Upgrade Blog Series Schedule!!  I highly recommend checking it out. I attended Kelly’s session at Convergence and she had some fantastic insights.

Here’s a summary of notes I created for my quick reference -

Upgrade Paths from GP 10, GP 2010 to GP 2013-

  • If you are on GP 2010, you must be on at least build 11.00.1860 which is after GP2010 SP2
  • In order to upgrade from GP10 to GP2013, you must be on at least GP10 build 10.00.1779 which is after GP10 SP5
  • If you are upgrading from GP 9, you need to first upgrade to GP 10 or GP 2010.

Product Changes

  • Extender is no longer an installable feature in the GP 2013 DVD – you need to get it from eOne
  • Audit Trails and Electronic Signatures are no longer an installable feature in the GP 2013 DVD – you need to get it from Merit Solutions
  • Collections Management is under Additional Products
  • Don’t install web client run time on all machines - Only install on Web Client Session Host Servers
     

Review the “Upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013” page on Partnersource/CustomerSource for latest news / updated documentation. This is updated frequently based on feedback from customers/partners, so if you read it last month – go read it again before commencing a new upgrade.
