Install the .NET Business Connector

The .NET Business Connector for Microsoft Dynamics AX enables applications to interact with Application Object Server (AOS) instances by providing a set of managed classes that facilitate access to X++ functionality.

The .NET Business Connector is installed automatically for those components that require it, such as Enterprise Portal and the Application Integration Framework. The .NET Business Connector can also be installed as a stand-alone component and used to develop third-party applications that integrate with Microsoft Dynamics AX.

You must install the .NET Business Connector on each computer where the integrated application is installed. The application will then communicate with the AOS through the .NET Business Connector instance on the local computer.

To install the .NET Business Connector the following steps should be performed:

Step 1: Run Microsoft Dynamics AX installer and follow the wizard.

Step 2: On the 'Select installation type' page click 'Custom installation' and then click 'Next'.

Step 3: On the 'Select components' page select '.NET Business Connector'.

Step 4: On the 'Install files' page click 'Next' to accept the default location or click 'Browse' to specify the other location.

Step 5: .NET Business Connector is a type of Microsoft Dynamics AX client. If it is the first client you are installing it is required to set the display language. On the 'Select display language' page select the language which will be used in Microsoft Dynamics AX. If you later decide to change the language, you can modify the display language from within the client.

Step 6: On the '.NET Business Connector: Connect to AOS instance' page type the name of the Application Object Server you want to connect to and then click 'Next'.

Step 7: Click 'Install' to install the component.
