  • It seems to be you have installed server version of Dynamics GP. Install client version.

  • Im using the client version. I installed it no problem on xp machine and

    Win 7 64b.

  • Scott, I have seen this error come up when you do not have enough permissions. Sometimes you can get away with right clicking the shortcut and using 'Run as administrator'. If that does not work, log into Windows as the local built-in administrator.

  • BCP.exe is a Bulk Copy Program that is not always available on newer versions of windows.  Find it on the web and install it on the Win7 machines you are having a problem with.

  • Hi,

    I'm going to second the vote for 'Run as Administrator'. I've been greeted with the BCP utility error many times. Usually the 'run as administrator' method works, other times I've just copied the BCP.exe file into the GP base folder.

    Kind regards,
