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

2. 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.
