How to find out all the AX KBs installed on your machine

A client asked me today how to find out all the KBs  were applied to one of its environments. Normally I would say go to “About Microsoft Dynamics AX” then “Show installed models”. However, in some cases not all KBs are shown in this form.

Here is another fine way you can find out :

Control Panel > Programs and Features > View installed updates



To find out more about version numbers and published patches, please use the link below. Microsoft team keeps constantly updated build numbers.

How to upgrade a new model file form an ISV with conflict

Step 1: Install a model

  1. axutil.exe delete /model:YOUR_EXITING_MODEL_ID /config:”YOUR_AOS”
  2. axutil.exe import /config:”YOUR_AOS” /file:”C:\YOUR_PATH\YOUR_MODEL_FILE.axmodel” /conflict:push /verbose

Step 2: Find Conflict  model

The process will create a conflict model if found image


Step 3: Create a project from a conflict model

  1. Open the Development Workspace.
  2. Choose Tools > Model management > Create project from model.
  3. Select the model that will be used as the source of the project content.
  4. Supply the name of the new project to be created.
  5. Click OK. The project will be created that has the elements from the model.

A project will provide project name will be created in private project

Step 4: Resolve conflicts

Go to your project and start selecting a resource that has conflict.

Compare to see the differences between the resource in the patch layer and the resource in the main layer.

There are many ways to resolve the conflict, depending on the resource type and the actual conflict. Some of the ways to resolve the conflict include the following:

  • Use the information and the available actions from the Comparison window to merge changes from the conflict model into an existing layer.
  • Make a change in the resource in an existing model in the current layer. For example, if two different models in the layer have modified the same resource, you could consider creating a new “shared” model in the layer that contains a single version of the resource that can be used by both of the other models.
  • Switch to the patch layer and modify the resource there. In some cases, this is the easiest way to resolve the conflict.

Repeat this process until there isn’t any object to resolve.
