Visual Studio 2017 started being included in all new environment virtual machines since 10.0.13 PU37. The final version that will support Visual Studio 2015 will be 10.0.16 PU40. Microsoft managed environments will be upgraded by Microsoft and coordinated with you. However, if you have a cloud hosted environment, you must upgrade or redeploy to be able to take update 10.0.17 in the cloud hosted virtual machine. In production, you can begin self-updating to 10.0.17 on March 19, 2021 and auto-updates will begin April 2, 2021. Please keep this deprecation in mind and plan accordingly for when you intend to take this update. A link to the deprecated feature can be found here.
With 10.0.13 and later versions, .NET 4.7.2 also became a dependency for the X++ developer tools in Visual Studio. Our team encountered the below error with one of our Designated Support Engineer (DSE) customers who was upgrading to 10.0.14. The update failed and an error was found in their AxUpdateInstaller_execute_<timestamp>.log file. [16:38:58.3095] [ErrorCode: 131088].NET 4.7.2 is required on the environment, but was not foundThe solution is to install .NET 4.7.2, which you can download here. You can also check what version of .NET your virtual machine is running from the registry editor at key:
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full\Version
I want to give a special thanks to my colleague, Chuck Anderson, for bringing this topic to the blog as he wanted all our customers to know about this coming change. Thanks, Chuck!
