  • Hi Munsifuv,

    If your system is 64 Bit and  have RAM 8GB+ and HDD 750 GB+ then You can install the Vmware and inside with you can install the Windows Server 2012, (then run dcpromo to make AD), after which install SQL 2008 R2 or SQL 2012 and then finally AX 2012. (All software ISO can be downloaded from MS site)

    For Win 7 home premium edition, if it was in AD early then we can have some work around.

    All the best! :)


    Thank you
  • thanks, for suggesting helpful answer...

    but i have 4gb ram,320gb hdd...i have tried installation of ax 2012 without domain account by using NT network Authority service ,,,but when installation is finished, even i have summary that every basic components (database,AOS, Client) installed successfully..but when i try to opened ax 2012,it gives me error "The Server is unavailable,Check your configuration and network Connection and try again"...

  • If the installation was successful and you are getting the above error then make sure that the AOS service is running.It generally take time for the AOS service to start up after the first installation.

    1- Visual studio 2012 complete.

    2-Sql server 2012 complete with all options.

    3-Dynamics Ax 2012 installation select custom installation and one by one option.

     1- Databases option run, resolve all prerequisite for it.

      2- AOS option run, resolve all prerequisite for it.

      3- Business intelligence options. and resolve.

      5- Management Untilities. Uncheck the project server.
