    System Requirements for GP 2013 and higher versions

    If you are still on Dynamics GP 2013 or an earlier version, you should consider scheduling an upgrade as Microsoft ends mainstream support for GP 2013 on April 10, 2018. With this, you will no longer receive year end updates and there will be minimal support for this version. GP 2013 will then move into extended support until April 11, 2023.

    Do your homework before you upgrade

    You need to be extra cautious before attempting an upgrade, as the system requirements vary for different customer profiles. This can result in upgrade failure that leaves devastating impact. Also, be sure to maintain a backup and then run a full test upgrade on a different system before going for the live upgrade.
