How to: Choose Components to Install
When you run Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 Setup, you can install a predefined component package. These packages are called Installation Options. If you have to modify the set of components that are included in an existing installation option, then you can choose Customize under any installation option. If you want to install components that are not all available in a predefined installation option, then you can choose Custom Components.
You can customize the component list for the Client, Server, or Developer installation options. However, only with the Developer Option can you choose from the complete set of Microsoft Dynamics NAV components. The range of available components for the other two installation options is limited to components that are relevant for that option.
Choosing Components to Install
In this procedure, you use the Component Selection page to select what to install.
To identify the components that you want to install
In Setup, on the Choose an installation option page, decide which Installation Option you want to customize, and then choose Customize below the name of the installation option.
This opens the Customize the installation page with one or more components already selected.
You can also choose Custom Components on the Choose an installation option pane. This opens the Customize the installation pane without preselected components.
To install Microsoft Dynamics NAV to a location other than the default location, on the Customize the installation page, choose Destination folder.
Select the components that you want to install on the Customize the installation page.
Options are presented in a tree view. The tree has three levels of hierarchy:
The top level shows only a single node, which is Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
The second level shows additional nodes that each identify a component such as Client and Server. Some second-level nodes have a plus sign on the left. You can choose the plus sign to display the third level of the hierarchy.
The third level shows subcomponents for the selected second-level component.
Each node has one of three statuses as indicated by its appearance.
Component node Description
The component and all its subcomponents are selected for installation.
The component is selected for installation. Some or none but not all of the subcomponents are also selected. Only items on the top or second level can be gray because only these nodes can have subcomponents.
Neither the component nor any of its subcomponents is selected for installation.
Choose a component to open a menu of options for that component. You must click in the box. The following options are available.
Node option Description
Run from My Computer
Select this component for installation.
Run all from My Computer
Select this component and all subcomponents for installation.
Cancel installation of this component and all subcomponents.
For second-level nodes without subcomponents and third-level nodes, the only options are Run from My Computer and Not Available.
After you have selected the set of components and subcomponents that you want to install, choose Next to continue to the Specify parameters page. For more information, see How to: Preconfigure Components.
