You can download the install files from Customersource and install it on a test environment.  If you want to test with a copy of your production database, I believe you'd need to have updated reg keys.  You don't need updated reg keys if you are just going to be using Fabrikam, a sample company.   Although depending on what third parties you have, you may even need updated keys to use Fabrikam.

Thank you so much Matt, I'll give it a try.

We're running an older version of GP with now, just want to have a look/feel GP2016 before upgrade, your answer is perfect.

Thank you

Thank you Beat.  

Will try hard, we will have consultant to do most of work, but very hard to find right support on Manufacturing part in GP,  not so many users are using GP manufacturing part?

Thank you.

Manufacturing is one of the most complex modules in GP.. if not done properly, can quickly become a nightmare..

Willoware has some very nice add-on and 3rd party products for Manufacturing and GP in GEneral, they will make your life much easier..
