Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2017 Ready for download (and how to do it)

Here are a few interesting links which might be interesting to you:

When you have difficulties downloading it, you are probably on Windows 10 and Internet Explorer 11, like I am. Let me share you how I was able to download ..

  • First, install the latest “File Transfer Manager” from Microsoft. Best is to uninstall and re-install. You can get it here.
  • Next, make sure you’re using Internet Explorer, not Edge! There is even an “Open with Internet Explorer” option in Edge:

  • Unblock popups .. you need popups!
  • Navigate to the download page.
  • Click your desired download
    • This is the part that you would expect that the File Transfer Manager would pop up, and that the download would start .. But doesn’t
  • Be brave, and go to the developer tools (you can just press F12)

  • Go to “Emulation” and change the document mode to “10”

    Magic happens – File transfer Manager wakes up and the download is ready to start!

You can also change the compatibility mode of “Microsoft.Com” by adding it in the “Compatibility View Settings” .. But I didn’t really want to do that for all microsoft.com sites.. .

Hope this helps!

    Incredible. Moving to the cloud and conquering the world but unable to provide a simple download…

    It is sad that NAV cannot be downloaded with it’s own MS Tools.

    Thanks Waldo. Needed this.

  4. Ganti

    This is a perfect example where we are: Providing high complex new things but cannot deal with the simple ones 🙂
    Thanks waldo!

  5. Oscar

    Thanks a lot!

    I agree regarding the download. Incredible that they still have issues with this, why not just skip the transfer manager.

  6. Dave Machanick

    Same problem with Windows 8.1 and same fix makes it work. Do you anyone actually tests this?
    Thanks much for the info.

    Simply set the download page to open in compatibly view and it works just fine without all these steps.

    Download the latest version of FTM built in 2007!! Thanks for the emulation setting, it was doing my head in!

  13. Nathanael Altice

    The download is fixed now. Microsoft removed FTM from the process.

      Thanks for mentioning!

    […] download some files today, and was getting nowhere when I suddenly remembered that WALDO’s BLOG http://www.waldo.be/2016/10/27/microsoft-dynamics-nav-2017-ready-for-download-and-how-to-do-it/ had instructions for downloading the Dynamics NAV 2017 […]
