Using ClickOnce to create Windows Client for NAV2015 Image on Microsoft Azure

The last time when I wrote about new NAV 2015 image on Microsoft Azure, I showed you how to create VM and how to change credential to NavUserPassword for really cloud using. After running the Initialize the Virtual Machine, you got possibility to run all NAV clients from VM and Web Client from your computer. Of course, for this you had to add new Endpoint on Microsoft Azure Portal: HTTPS, with 443 as port numbers. But, I suppose you want to use NAV with Windows Client from your PC. For this usage, we again got an excellent tool on Welcome screen. You need to click on Install Click Once deployment of the Windows Client link and you will find PowerShell script in DEMO folder. You need to run your PowerShell ISE as Administrator and open this script install.ps1. Now, you only need to run this PS script. After few minutes, system will show you all links, and on the end link for ClickOnce. ClickOnce1

Now, you have to add new Endpoints on your Microsoft Azure Portal:

  • HTTP, with 80 as port numbers for ClickOnce install (this port is configured in previous script)
  • Windows Client, with 7046 for NAV Window Client running

ClickOnce0

When you finish with Endpoints, you have to use your ClickOnce link from URLs file on your Internet Explorer. System will open ClickOnce Online Installation page. You need to run Install and wait. ClickOnce2

After installation is finished, you only need to fill your credentials and run your Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 Windows Client on Microsoft Azure.

ClickOnce3

That’s all about easy using script for ClickOnce Windows Client installation. But, I will show you something more about it few daysd

New NAV2015 Image on Microsoft Azure

Finally, we got a new NAV release as image on Microsoft Azure Gallery. This is Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015 CU3. I expected it earlier, because GP 2015 has already existed. But, OK this is not so late. blog-1 Now, all of you who want to test Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2015, can do it on Microsoft Azure VM. And, I am really happy, because it is with the last CU with great features. You can install it easy as you only need to follow instructions and wait few minutes for deploying. You can use Connect icon to make connection with new Azure VM. When you are signed on VM, you have all necessary links and you can run new NAV. You can run Windows, Web and Tablet clients or Development Environment. You also can run Administration and Development Shells. But I am little disappointed, because again as for NAV2013R2, we have configured Windows credential type, not NavUserPassword. With Windows credential type, you can use this NAV only on this VM. You cannot have really Azure experience. You also have only two endpoints, but you can add additional. blog-2 To make Azure experience with logging from your computer, you have to change credential type with new tools (I will post about it). But regardless of it, it image has excellent tools. You can find all important location for NAV on VM easy and you can add your language, as well and do other great things. Some of features are not installed by default, but you can easy find installation DVD (using link on home page) and finish it if you need. You also can find a lot of cool demos. In any case, thanks to Microsoft for this image. I will have a lot of information for few days, after I make a few demos.
