GP Reports Viewer is an add-in product for Microsoft Dynamics GP. It is used to set up, secure, print and email Crystal Reports and Microsoft SQL Reporting Services Reports inside of Dynamics GP. This manual applies to Microsoft Dynamics GP versions 2010, 2013 and 2015.
GP Reports Viewer can be installed on any computer that has a working Dynamics GP installation.
You do not need to install GP Reports Viewer application on the GP SQL Server. You can do so if you have Dynamics GP installed there, however it is not required. Any of the installation, registration and setup tasks for GP Reports Viewer can be performed from any computer that has Dynamics GP and GP Reports Viewer installed.
We recommend performing the installation of GP Reports Viewer while logged into Windows as the local built-in administrator (built-in account for administering the computer/domain). This will ensure that you have the proper permissions to install and register all the components that are required for GP Reports Viewer. We also recommend running Dynamics GP and printing a report using GP Reports Viewer while still logged in as the local built-in administrator after the installation.
To install GP Reports Viewer:
Make a backup of your DYNAMICS database and all your company databases.
Ensure that you have the GP Reports Viewer installation file that matches your version of Dynamics GP. You must run the appropriate version of GP Reports Viewer for the version of Dynamics GP you are using.
Run the gprvXXbYY.exe file to begin the installation. (XX is the GP version and YY the build number.)
