Thanks for getting this up! The documentation link on the page does not work. Excited to install!
Oooooh oooh oooh... not excited at all! :)
One dead link on the page is the install instructions is resolving to what appears to be an internal URL:
For clarification to all of our partners that are anxiously awaiting this Beta, there is no technical support available for the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client Beta release. One great way to "help yourselves" is by utilizing the Partner OTC Forum, located at social.microsoft.com/.../threads
Downloaded and installed the 2013 Beta on Windows 7. Glad to see the named databases both for System database and the Sample database. Good job.
One issue i found installing the SSRS and Excel Reports. The Installation wizard that opens SSRS Deployment wizard allows the user to click on the Finish button again and starts another deployment wizard, throwing errors. The first deployment wizard opened and was still installing, but when i switched windows and came back, i saw the installation wizard window and thought i forgot to start the deployment and started again. Could this be fixed - when one deployment wizard has already been started, user should not be allowed to start that again.
Will keep using/testing the Beta. Good job GP team on releasing the Beta exactly during the Airlift.
Downloaded and installed GP 2013 beta on Windows 7. Was so happy to see the named databases, both for the System and Sample company database.
the install went fine. One issue i had was when deploying the SSRS and Excel Reports. The install wizard popped open the Deployment Wizard and it started installing. But when i switched windows, and came back to the install wizard, it allowed me to click on Finish and rerun the Deployment wizard, while the previous one was still working (didn't notice the other one). This threw errors while deployment and then stopped. But was able to launch GP after that.
Can the install be changed so that the deployment wizard is not launched multiple times.
This is great news. I'm looking forward to playing with it and seeing how the new features work. For those of you asking if something "can" be fixed, the answer is it can be fixed.
