Hi All, We keep getting the following queries about Navision Executable:
Is it mandatory to have the same build on both the tiers?
How we can check the build of the service tier / client?
This Post will aim to answer the above questions.
Question 1: Is It Mandatory To Have The Same Build On Both The Tiers? Yes, it is best to keep all the tiers at the same Version (Build). There are cases where you will get errors if builds are inconsistent. For instance:
When you try to save a change done at the table Level, the system throws an error.
XMLPORTS, when you try to run it on a configuration where the server and client build are different it gives the error "Cannot Find File"
With NAV 2013 R2 You should at least upgrade your Exe to Build 36281 i.e Rollup 5. Question 2: How We Can Check The Build Of The Service Tier / Client? Step 1. Open Windows Client. Step 2. Navigate to Help, About Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The Screen will be like as shown below.
Step 3. The Third Line (i.e Version) tells us the Client Build. In Picture above Windows Client Build is 36897 (7.1.36897.0)
How To Check Service Tier Build?
Step 1. Open the Navision Service Tier Server.
Step 2. Open Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 R2 Administration. The Screen should look something like as shown below.
