I've been trying in a test environment to upgrade our system from NAV 2013 R2 to 2017. I've been following https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn271650(v=nav.90).aspx , which seemed reasonably straightforward. However, a middle step requires a partner license, which as an end user we don't have. Even if I just wnat to do an upgrade all myself with no custom work, is it true that this cannot be done without paying a partner? We've gotten a few quotes for the upgrade, and they're all over the map, but all are more than we can afford as a charitable organization. I already installed/maintain our CRM and Sharepoint servers, so I figured I should be able to do this, but I've never dealt with a program that was locked down enough so that you have literally no choice but to pay a special organization to do an upgrade. Hoping I'm missing something. :-(
Allison Walters ,
yes you are right , hope you got stuck with accessing the development environment
without accessing Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment you cannot do the
i think best option is to contact your partner and ask them to help you to give development license for the purpose of upgrade (not for the permanent)
You might have a vendor management skills to get it :) [hope you know what i mean]
Other wise they will charge for the upgrade, ask them you are the one get the risk of upgrade and you just need development license only upgrade part
You might need to contact partner to upgrade your solutions or maybe you can try out with some freelancers
Unfortunately you cannot upgrade without full developer license. Either you can buy the license or you need to contact the partner.
My intention is not to market but we @Archerpoint have extensive experience in upgrade and very affordable. Try to check with us. www.archerpoint.com
Thank you for the info. I have to say, I'm thoroughly uninterested in a product we have to pay someone to upgrade (as well as paying for the upgrade), and have this little control over. I'll put off the upgrade for now and put some time into looking at other alternatives instead. Thanks!
Allison Walters ,
yes its good i think ,
also its better to give upgrade that the same partner that you have purchase/implement
