Silent Installation for Dynamics GP


If you are looking to install GP in silent mode without using packages, you may need to check command below, I found it as an answer to question in Microsoft Dynamics Forum:

msiexec /i “C:\path\bin\GreatPlains.msi” SQL_SERVER_NAME=”server that is running Microsoft SQL Server” INSTALLDIR=”installdirpath” SELECTED_COUNTRY=”country” TRANSFORMS=:Inst0instance;c:\skipdotnetcheck.mst INSTANCE_NAME=”instancename” MSINEWINSTANCE=1 /qb+

Along with that command from above, you can use the “ADDLOCAL” command to install certain modules from GP. I found a list of codes for each module and they seem to be valid (at least the several I have tried).

A4 – A4
AA – Analytical Accounting
BM – Bank Management
CPR – Canadian Payroll
CM – Collections Management
DDR – Direct Debit Refunds
PMEFT – EFT for Payables Management
RMEFT – EFT for Receivables Management
EREC – Electronic Bank Reconcile
EM – Encumbrance Management
EI – Enhanced Intrastat
EXTENDER – Extender
FAM – Fixed Asset management
GM – Grant Management
HRM – Human Resources
MFG – Manufacturing
MLCHECKS – Multilingual Checks
PDM – Payment Document Management
PA – Project Accounting
RED – Revenue/Expense Deferrals
SP – Safe Pay
SI – Scheduled Instalments
SLB – SmartList Builder

For instance, if you wanted to install Fixed Assets, Safe Pay, and Smartlist Builder you would put “ADDLOCAL=FAM,SP,SLB”
