Extender 2016

Upgrading Extender from 2013 / 2015

This section covers the Upgrade process to upgrade your Extender data and resources from Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 / 2015.


New Installation of Extender on Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015:

If you are installing into an environment on Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 where Extender was never previously installed, please see the New Environment section.


Upgrading to the latest build for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016:

If you are currently using Extender with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 and are just trying to upgrade to the latest build, please see the Upgrading 2016 Install section.



If you are already using Extender on Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 or 2015, do not run through the upgrade process.  This process is only for those coming from Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013.


The Extender upgrade follows the supported upgrade paths from 2013 and 2015 that are available for Microsoft Dynamics GP.  You can find these on PartnerSource or CustomerSource in the Upgrading to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 Hot Topic.


As in any upgrade process, we recommend that you use a test environment to walk through the upgrade process.  By doing this, you can identify and resolve any potential issues that may occur in the upgrade process.  A test upgrade also allows you to lean the new features in Extender before putting it into production.



If you are on a previous release of Extender and Microsoft Dynamics GP such as 2010, you are going to need to do an intermediary update to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 or 2015.  Please review the upgrade steps in that releases manual for more information on the process for the appropriate build.
