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

clouddownload

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.
