NAV 2013 Sharepoint Client on Windows 7.

Hi all,

Lets see how can we install Share point client on windows 7.

We would require Share Point Foundation 2010 before installing navision Sharepoint Client. You can download Share Point Foundation from here.

Run the setup after downloading the setup.

If you are trying to install it in windows 7 as i am doing it, you might find error as shown below -




Setup is unable to proceed due to the following error(s): This product requires Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 or above.Correct the issue(s) listed above and re-run setup.


We are getting this error because SharePoint Foundation only support server Operating System.

For the above issue resolution please follow below steps -

1) Run Notepad as administrator.

2) Open the config file from the folder where temp files have been extracted. By Default the location is C:\Program Files (x86)\MSECache\SharePoint2010\Files\Setup\Config.xml

3) Before end of the configuration Tab add below line -

   <Setting Id="AllowWindowsClientInstall" Value="True"/>


The file should look like as shown below -

Save the config file & Run the setup again.

4) From the installation option select Standalone installation option. The setup will install all the require component.

5) Once installation is completed it will ask for Running Configuration wizard as shown below.


6) Click close it will be start the configuration. When configuration starts it gives you some warning messages, click OK. This warning is due to non- supportive Operating system.

7) Configuration contain total of 10 task which will complete automatically. you don't need to worry about anything.

8) You might face many error during step 2 as shown below which i will discuss in separate post later. 

10) Once Configuration is over sharepoint will automatically open the default site as shown below.



11) Now we need to install navision sharepoint client. Let's run the Navision setup again and select Add or Remove Component.

12) Then select the Portal Framework for Sharepoint and select Run From my computer as shown below.


13) Complete the installation and browse the site http://localhost/.

14) From site action select new page. I Name the new Page as NAV Customer List.


15) Now i will add a web part from editing tool as shown below.


16) Under Miscellaneous select Microsoft Dynamics NAV web Part and click add.

17) Click on open the tool Pane and select customer list from Drop down Box.

18) A new page will be added which be displayed as below.
