Installing Security Development Tool for AX 2012 R3

Today I am installing Security Development Tool in one of our lab environments. First of all you need to download the tool from LifeCycle Services.

When you have the file msi file it is time to do the install

  1. Start by running the msi file… this is an extremely short install which seems to do nothing… but that is OK
  2. When the mis install is done start Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Management Shell as an elevated user and run the following

    Install-AXModel -File “c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Security Development Tool\SecurityDevelopmentTool.axmodel”

  3. Start the AX client and you will get a message that the Model store has been modified. Select Compile and Syncronize and wait for the process to complete
  4. When AX is done compiling and syncing start the AOT (by pressing Crtl + D)
  5. Browse to the Class called SysSecEntryPointmanagerSetup, right-click and select Open
  6. Restart the AX client
  7. When the client is restarted go to Administration and click Security entry point permissions

    Note: You might get an error that the tool can only be run in Single-User session mode. In that case goto Administration – Online users and disconnect all users except your own

That is all


Installing Dynamics AX 2012–Good to know

Today I am doing some testing and installing Dynamics AX 2012 R3… Here are some notes on the install (more will be added)

On my first test the install failed hard. It seemed that the install of OAS worked and that the rest failed… in fact everything failed. In the log I found the following error:

The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070422).

The error occurred because my lab machines has the Windows Update Service disabled… The solution is to set the service to either manual or automatic
