When I started with AL, with a local installation from product DVD, I have seen some issues and I have noticed too, that a lot of people have the same issues and not too easy to fix them with the forum answers. Well, I am a programmer, but not a very technical programmer. So I think my experience could help someone to start using AL with VSCode.
This is the beginning: I just installed NAV 2018 form DVD, you can follow steps showed in this post: https://community.dynamics.com/nav/b/totovicnavblog/archive/2017/12/03/how-to-install-nav-2018. I didn´t have the problem about “Developer services Enabled” not checked, but is good to open the service management and make a review.
Next step, if you haven´t already did it, download and install Visual Studio Code. Go to https://code.visualstudio.com/ and it´s very easy, even for people like me.
The next step is open VSCode and install AL language extension. There are two ways to do that, and I think the right is the second (later you will notice why):
Next step type Al Go to load a new AL sample project.
To make it work, we have to do:
1. Download symbols.
2. Publish with F5.
This could be fixed editing in launch.json this line, setting tenant to an empty string.:
When we type download symbols we have an output asking you to review setup in app.Json and launch.json , and symbols can´t be downloaded:
So, you can do two actions:
Edit app.json and set locale from “US” to “W1”. W1 allways work:
Install AL language extension form DVD instead from Market place. Remember:
And then you choose the ALLanguage.vsix from your computer.
I hope this could be useful. If you are some questions please send it to me, but notice I am very basic solving problems.
