I'm trying to open up NAV2013 R2 in config mode in Windows PowerShell.

I write this

cd "Program Files (x86)" enter

cd "Microsoft Dynamics NAV" enter

cd ""71" enter

cd "RoleTailored Client" enter

to here everything is fine, but how should I now type, I tried below but it dosen't work at all. NAV are not open up

Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe -configure -profile:"Accounting Manager"

I read that you should put OWNER ID on the profile ID but on a NAV2013R2 there is no field called Owner ID.

What am I missing?

Thanks for all your help

Hi Annika Bader,

For NAV 2013 R2 you don't need to add yourself as owner ID.

Just follow the steps in the article

You will not get an error message Shown in step 2.

Just do the Step One.

Steps -

1) Open Command Prompt as Administrator.

2) Navigate to Location where Navision is installed. (Default - C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\71\RoleTailored Client)

3) Run Following command ---

Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe -configure -profile:"Accounting Manager"

Where Accounting Manager is the profile that I want to configure.

It will open NAV Client in Config Mode which you can see at right corner.

Let me know if any issues.

Hi Saurav,

thansk for your answer I have tried your soulotion lots of time.. But it dosen't work if you open upp a Windows PowerShell in a Windows Server 2012 I can't open up another command Promt PowerShell is what I have in a Windows Server 2012

I don't know how I can send you a picture with the message I got when I do as below.

Hi Saurav,

since the profile owner is not in 2013 R2, I had set a user to open NAV in config mode but then she rec'd error message - no permissions on TableData Profile Metadata:Insert. I changed her permissions to Super so she could configure the profile. Is there a new role/permission that she should have instead of super or do I need to create one so she can use config mode as needed without having to change permission to super?

Hey Rita,

First thing First -

Check the Super Role, does it have permission for table and Table data 0 as read/write/delete?

Optionally you can add the Permission for the user in any of the role for table 2000000074.

I think the issue is after upgrade, just let me know if the issue exist.
