Acumatica Report Designer Download
Does anyone know where I can go to download Report Designer for Acumatica?
I gather that it's a separate windows application (too bad for Mac users) that you use to design reports, then you publish them into Acumatica where they can be run within a web browser.
But I'm not sure where to go to download the Report Designer application.
You are correct, no Macs for designing reports unfortunately. But of course since running reports is done in the web browser like everything else in Acumatica, you can run them on a Mac, an iPad, a phone, etc.
You can do the following to download Report Designer and install it on your Windows computer:
- Go to http://builds.acumatica.com
- Choose the folder for your version of Acumatica
- Choose the folder for your specific build number of Acumatica
- Choose the AcumaticaTools folder
- Download the AcumaticaReportDesigner.msi installer file
- Run the installer file (it's very small and lightweight) to install Report Designer on your machine
No problem, barging in on threads is what it's all about here. The more the merrier.
Yes, you are correct, the AcumaticaERPInstall.msi file in the AcumaticaERP folder of a build is the entire Acumatica installation routine. You can use it to install a fully functioning Acumatica environment on your local computer as long as you are running IIS and SQL Server or MySQL. There are no feature limitations. The only limitation is that you can only have 2 concurrent users logged in at any given time.
I am just trying to get started with Acumatica and I am having hard time even finding out how to download the report designer. I followed the link above; http://builds.acumatica.com , but could not locate the AcumaticaReportDesigner.msi file. I am running 2018R1 Build 18.100.0062. Hopefully I am not just being lame, but the online help from Acumatica is not much help on the basic task of downloading the software. Any added directions would be a big help. Thanks.
That's strange, it doesn't look like the 2018 R1 folders have the AcumaticaTools folder that the Report Designer install file is located in.
Try just using the latest 2017 R2 build. That should work for you. You can navigate to 17.2/17.208.0034/AcumaticaTools.
Found that report designer does not need to be installed to run. We copied the directory from a full installation of Acumatica (i.e. C:\Program Files (x86)\Acumatica ERP\Report Designer) and have team members running this copy it locally and run the ReportDesigner.exe file in the directory. Have not observed any issues with this.
Right, Report Designer is only needed to edit reports. When you run a report, it's running through your web browser using the Acumatica Framework on the server.
MYOB Advanced users can download it from System -> Customisation -> Tools -> Download MYOB Advanced Tools
We can also download the Device Hub installer as well.

Wonder if this works with an Acumatica domain?
