Installing Integration Manager

Use the following procedure to install Integration Manager. If you are installing Integration Manager to a computer that is running Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows Server® 2008, you need to place the Integration Manager database file into a writable folder. We recommend putting your Integration Manager database files in C:/Programs/Microsoft Dynamics/Integration Manager/Samples or C:/Programs/Microsoft Dynamics/Integration Manager/Data.

To install Integration Manager:

  1. Be sure that you’re logged in to Windows as a user with system administrator privileges.
  2. From the Microsoft Dynamics GP media, double-click the Setup.exe file to open the installation window.
  3. Under Additional Products, click Integration Manager > Install.

The installation program verifies that your system has the minimum operating system required to run Integration Manager for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010. If your system does not meet requirements, the installation will not continue.

  1. If the current version of Integration Manager is already installed on this computer, the Modify Installation window will open. In the Modify Installation window, you can choose to add or remove features, repair installation files, or remove this version of Integration Manager from your computer.
  2. Select to accept the license agreement. Click Next.
  3. The Select Features window opens. Select the adapters to install.
  4. In the Select Features window, indicate where to install the Integration Manager engine and adapter files and click Next to continue.

We recommend that you install these Integration Manager components in the default folder (Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics\Integration Manager). The sample Integration Manager database file (IntegrationManager.imd) is installed to this location.

If you saved an existing Integration Manager database file from a previous version of Integration Manager, you can move it into this folder after you complete the installation.

To use a shared Integration Manager database file from multiple workstations in a network environment, you must copy the Integration Manager database file to a shared network location after the install is complete. Locate and copy the Integration Manager database file to your shared network location. To access the shared Integration Manager database file, from each workstation that needs to access this file, open Integration Manager. From the Tools menu, choose Options. Browse to the location of the shared Integration Manager database file, and click OK. If you save the file with the .imd file extension, you can double click the .imd file to open your database. For example, double clicking IntegrationManager.imd will open the IntegrationManager.imd database.

  1. If you chose to install the eConnect adapter, the eConnect COM User window opens. Enter the account information (domain, user name, password) for the Windows user who will be running the eConnect COM+ application.

The user account you enter must be included in the DYNGRP role in the Microsoft Dynamics GP system and company databases that you will use with Integration Manager.

  1. The Ready to Install window opens. Click Install to start the installation. Click Back to review your settings and make corrections as necessary.

During the copying and installation of files, an Installation Progress window opens. Several messages appear about the progress of the install. When the installation is complete, the Installation Complete window opens.

  1. In the Installation Complete window, click Finish.
  2. The next time someone launches Microsoft Dynamics GP, a message appears. The message may indicate that new code must be included or that the dictionary needs to be un-chunked. Click Yes.
  3. If you backed up your Integration Manager database file before the installation, move that file into the destination folder you specified during installation.

You also can change the location of your Integration Manager database file by choosing Tools > Options in Integration Manager. The Options window opens, and you can enter the default Integration Manager database path on the General tab.
