Since the change from Menus for Visual Studio Tools to Visual Studio Integration Toolkit (VSIT) and more recently the release of Build 11 of Visual Studio Integration Toolkit, I have received some questions about how to include the VSIT code in the Visual Studio Tools Addin’s installer.
With the release of Build 11 of Visual Studio Integration Toolkit for GP 2010, GP 2013, GP 2015 and GP 2016, the product now has a full installer and registration system. The registration system was added to allow tracking of the usage of the tool for support purposes and to justify continued development. The installer was added because it is more professional and it is required to get the addin DLL files and registration system installed correctly.
A few questions have been raised after these changes. Below are some of the questions and their answers:
No, you cannot just include the files in your installer as there are registry changes also needed now.
Yes, All Winthrop products support a silent install and can be installed silently by your installer.
Note: Including the VSIT installer file in your installer does mean that you might not have the latest code. If you can download the installer first, then install it that is even better.
The Visual Studio Integration Toolkit installer supports a silent install with the appropriate parameters passed to the EXE file.
Below are examples of the syntax:
IntegrationToolkit_14.00.0011.exe /s INSTALL=TRUE TARGETDIR="C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics\GP2015\"
IntegrationToolkit_14.00.0011.exe /s INSTALL=TRUE TARGETDIR=" C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics\GP2015\" DYNINSTDESC="(Default)"
IntegrationToolkit_14.00.0011.exe /s INSTALL=TRUE TARGETDIR=" C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics\GP2015R2\" DYNINSTDESC="GP2015-R2"
Yes, the registration is required for every customer site, but it is free of charge for the base VSIT functionality.
No, the keys will automatically be downloaded from the internet as long as the customer has been registered with Mekorma. You can still manually enter them, but that should not be needed as long as the system has an internet connection.
No, the developer or partner can organise the registration with Mekorma on behalf of the customer. Please email sales@Mekorma.com for more information.
Yes, you will need NFR (Not For Resale) registration keys. Please email sales@Mekorma.com with the following details:
There are no plans to charge for the base functionality it already has. This is Winthrop’s and Mekorma’s gift to the Dynamics GP community.
However, at some time in the future, there are plans to add additional advanced features to the product and these will require a separate chargeable registration.

I hope that answers all the questions.
Thanks for your support
