Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 Developer's Preview: Loading the VHD image - Part 1

Now that you are beyond the initial excitement of the preview release announcement and have downloaded the RAR files with the links provided by Kevin Racer, Sr. Program Manager Lead with the Microsoft Dynamics GP team (See Microsoft announces Developer Preview for Dynamics GP 2015 for links to the rar files), it's time to get the VHD image loaded.

Note: you can use WinRAR or WinZip to extract the virtual hard drive image from the rar files downloaded from PartnerSource. The extracted file is 29.1GB.

Part 1 will focus on the traditional Hyper-V method of loading the file. Click here for direct access to the video on YouTube.

Until next post!

Are these RAR files for this GP 2015 exclusively for Hyper-V or do you know if they will work in VMware (ver 10)?

To my knowledge, VMWare has the ability to import VHD files. Please follow the instructions on creating a VMWare instance and attaching a virtual hard drive file to it.

Has the video changed recently? I just tried it on upload and it errors out.
