Using PowerShell with Microsoft Dynamics NAV – Part 1 (Getting Started, Changing NAV License)

PowershellISE-smallThis is the first post in a five part series on using PowerShell with Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

In the video, I discuss the different ways of accessing PowerShell, how to load the NAV Command Applet, and how to change a NAV license using PowerShell. For comparison, I also show how to change/upload a NAV license the traditional way from the NAV Development Client.

If you are unable to view the video below (or to watch it in HD), click here to view it directly on YouTube.

Note that the script in the download link is for NAV 2016. In the Import-Module line, replace 90 with 80 if you have NAV 2015 installed. Replace with 71 for NAV 2013 R2.

Come back next week for Part 2 of the Using PowerShell with NAV series!
