This version will still handle list, start and stop of services, but also restart of services, and it will also support multiple servers.
And as something new i have added the possibility to start your Dynamics AX from the program, supporting multiple configurations.

Show AX Compile progress (AXCompileProgressV1.00)

Billede
For some time now i wanted a tool that would show me the progress of a Compilation in AX, so i made this little tool.

It uses the AOT compile log, that you can enable in AX2012, by going to Tools\Options\Development\Compiler


And put a tick in AOT log:
Ax will now generate a compilation log in the given folder named AOTComp.log
Now my program will look at that logfile and from that calculate and show a progress bar for the compilation progress.
Right now the program might be very buggy since this is the first version, and also it will only look for the logfile under the current users Microsoft\Dynamics AX\Log folder, but i will change that in later versions.
Also the program needs to "run as Administrator", i will see if i can fix that also.

You can download the program from this link (AXCompileProgressV1.00.zip)

Please do leave a comment if you find the program useful, have a bug or a suggestion for a change.

Dynamics AX use of the startupcmd parameter

If you start ax32.exe with -startupcmd you can use this to automate some tasks.

Like for instance this command will perform a full compile of all elements in AX.
ax32.exe -startupcmd=CompileAll

Here is a full list of all the startupcmd parameters in AX2009 and AX2012.
The code that controls this can be found in Class SysStartupCmd method construct.
You can also add your own commands by adding them to this method.
