Error running Data Migration Framework on AX2012 R2

This question has suggested answer(s)

As I understand it the DMF is in wide use amongst AX 2012 users.

Has anyone got it working on AX 2012? We get the error below when attempting to view Entities

Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.DMF.PreviewGrid, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.


Is this something to do with the fact that AX 2012 has different dll files as discussed on other threads on this forum?

  • Our reseller managed to get this working by completely reinstalling DMF environment - something must not have registered properly on first install

  • I am having an issue with the dmf, when i click on generate source file, a wizard opens, then i click next, an error message pops up "The URL cannot be empty. Parameter name: url".

    i have selected the entity name and source data format.

  • Reinstall the client of DMF Beta 2. Some dlls are being registered in the assembly and some will be copied to the Client bin-folder and loaded when the Client starts.
