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
