Notes:

* The following are no longer supported with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018:

If using Office x64, the server type in System Preferences (Microsoft Dynamics GP | Tools | System | Setup | System Preferences) must be set to Exchange.

The Exchange server type only supports XPS and DOCX. If using Office 32bit, the server type in System Preferences can either be MAPI or Exchange.

**A 32bit ODBC DSN is required for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018.   Refer to KnowledgeBase Article 870416 for the steps to setup a 32-bit ODBC DSN on an x64 machine.

When you deploy a system in a virtual environment, make sure that you have sufficient hard disk space to avoid performance problems. Each computer that you deploy in a virtual environment should meet or exceed the random access memory (RAM) requirements and the hard disk space requirements.

For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 897615 Support policy for Microsoft software running in non- Microsoft hardware virtualization software.
