Smartconnect 2014 > Server 2016 compatibility

Craig Stoodley asked 4 years ago
Does SC2014 support a Server 2016 Datacentre environment.
For some background, we run GP 2013 R2 with Office 2013 32 bit
Would really like to utilise Office 2016 however we have been informed SC’s add-in will not run correctly.
Could any fine experts please shed some light? Much appreciated

Hello Craig,
SmartConnect has not been tested on Server 2016 Datacentre. I would recommend upgrading to SmartConnect 2018 to guarantee performance on Microsoft Server 2016. 
SmartConnect 2018 is backwards compatible with GP 2013.
The SmartConnext Excel Add-In is compatible with Excel 2016. We released an updated version a couple weeks ago which you can download here.
The one you want to install is SmartConnect Excel Add-in 2018.
