To upgrade Integrity Data products first open the Activation Manager screen within GP (Microsoft Dynamics GP > Tools > Setup > System > Activation Manager) and make note of all the products you have installed.  You will need to run the install on all machines, which currently have our products installed.  Once the database has updated the tables any users on an older version will get an error if they login to GP with the older version installed.  If you are unsure which machines have Integrity Data products installed, you can look at the Dynamics.set file on each machine (C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft DynamicsGP2013).  The Dynamics .set file will list all the products installed.  Now that you have all the products to upgrade and the machines that will need upgraded you can run the Microsoft Dynamics GP update.  Once Microsoft Dynamics GP has been updated you will follow the steps below to begin the Integrity Data installs. 

Prior to installing:

  • Confirm all users are logged out of Microsoft Dynamics GP
  • Complete all payroll runs and validate no payroll runs are in process
  • Make a backup of the Company and Dynamics databases and the GP folder

Install Instructions

To install Integrity Data Products first downloaded the Integrity Data GP 2013 Setup.exe file and User Guide from our website.  If installing Employee Email Suite or Comprehensive Leave Manager, see additional product specific steps.

Additional Product Specific Steps

Employee E-Mail Suite

Outlook 2010 and 2013

We currently support and update Outlook 2010 and 2013 addin. If you are using Outlook as the email method then you will need to verify the Integrity Data Email Companion is installed and Active in Outlook (File > Options > Addins). If the Integrity Data Email Security Addin is installed you will need to uninstall the Security Addin from the Control Panel and download the new Addin (Outlook Setup.exe file) from the website. Please see the Employee E-Mail Suite User Guide for more detailed install instructions on installing the new Outlook Addin. This install only needs to be ran on the machines with Outlook installed and where you plan to send the emails.

Outlook 2007

If you are using Outlook 2007, the employee specific email attachment is unsupported in this version.  You can still send a company PDF attachment and email earnings statements.  You need to verify the Integrity Data Security Addin is installed (Tools > Trust Center > Addins).  If this is installed you only need to download the Outlook 2007 GP 2013 DLL files.zip and Instructions Outlook 2007.txt files from the website and complete the instructions to replace the GP 2013 DLL files.  If you do not have the Integrity Data Security Addin you will also need to download the Outlook 2007 Setup.zip in addition to the DLL files and instruction.  This install only needs to be ran on the machines with Outlook installed and where you plan to send the emails.

Comprehensive Leave Manager for BP

If you are upgrading Comprehensive Leave Manager for Business Portal, before the Business Portal upgrade you must uninstall the current version of Comprehensive Leave Manager on Business Portal.  Please see the Comprehensive Leave Manager BP User Guide for the Uninstall steps and required permissions.  This user guide is for both BP 6.0 and 6.1.   After Comprehensive Leave Manager for BP has been uninstalled on the current BP server then proceed with the Business Portal upgrade.  Once the Business Portal upgrade is complete then download the install files and complete the install steps in the Comprehensive Leave Manger BP User Guide to install the new version of Comprehensive Leave Manager for BP.
