The topics in the Deployment node are intended to help an administrator install and configure Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 software.
Key Features of Setup
With Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 Setup, you can:
Install different components on different computers.
Preconfigure components before installation. For more information, see How to: Preconfigure Components.
Create, save, or load Setup configuration files that capture your selection of components and configuration information. For more information, see How to: Create or Load a Setup Configuration File.
You use Setup to install software and to create custom deployments that you can distribute to different users across a company.
Before installing Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 components on a computer, you must remove (uninstall) any previous versions.
All RoleTailored components must be from the same version and build of Microsoft Dynamics NAV for the software to run correctly.
If you have either SQL Server 2000 or Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine (MSDE) installed on a computer where you want to install Microsoft Dynamics NAV, then you must remove it before you begin installing. The presence of either of these database products causes a Setup error.
