VM AX 2012 R2 license file expired, need to update for 2014

First of all, happy New Year 2014.

First day after getting back to work, I faced a new challenge. I can’t open AX development workspace in any of my VM machines. It turns out license file for AX is only valid for year 2013. We need to update license file in order to use in 2014.

Step 1: Please download the file from this link


Step 2: Go to: System Administration > Licensing > License information


Step 3: Load license file and synchronize table


Step 4: Once synchronization is complete, close AX client and reopen again. You should be able to open development workspace


Happy DAXing 2014.

Tips and Tricks – CU7 – Compile optimization for CU6

Everyone is fascinated about CU7 compiler but you have to wait until you are approved to install CU7 onto your environment. For one likes me, I could not wait and decided to poke around with CU7 and have discovered that CU7 should provide backward compatibility; therefore I’m going to give it a try to get the AX32Build to my CU6 environment

My VM machine:

· Intel Core i7 2.67 GHz
· Memory: 12288
· OS: Running Dynamics AX 2012 (CU6) – No custom codes

Kernel should support backward compatibility. Here is the trick how to install on CU6 and get the AX32Build.exe file



Script: Go to the folder where AX32Serv.exe is

axbuild.exe xppcompileall /aos=01 /nocleanup /altbin=”C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Client\Bin” /workers=4

Command Line


Workers: 4


The result is amazing. Try it for yourself and spread the words. Have fun DAXing.
