Add custom DLL to installer - AX 2012 R3

Posted on by 45

We have a custom credit card connector, which we manually install to the AOS/client in these 2 locations:

  • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Server\MicrosoftDynamicsAX\bin\Connectors
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Client\Bin\Connectors

I attempted to add our DLL to the installer by adding it in all locations of the installer that I found the base Microsoft DLLs in the Connectors directory. For example:

  • C:\Dynamics AX 2012 R3\Msi\ClientOba32\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Client\Bin\Connectors
  • C:\Dynamics AX 2012 R3\Msi\ClientOba64\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Client\Bin\Connectors
  • C:\Dynamics AX 2012 R3\Msi\ObjectServer32\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Server\AppInst\Bin\Connectors
  • C:\Dynamics AX 2012 R3\Msi\ObjectServer64\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Server\AppInst\Bin\Connectors

But the installer did not include our custom DLL even after placing it in the above directories.

How can we include a customer connector, as well as any custom DLLs we require in the AX bin directories, in the install process?

Thanks!

    It is a base Microsoft directory (the connectors directory) so I was hoping there was some way to do this. Though I could not find any documentation on it.

    Ah, okay. If they require a specific folder and not normal probing paths, then it's not a solution.

    That might work for regular bin directory DLLs. I can try. But it does not work for credit card connectors (bin\Connectors).

    Is adding the project to AOT an option for you? Then it can be deployed to both AOS and client automatically (depending on setup).
