Axapta Manager (AxDynManagerV1.01)

I previously made a program to list, start and stop Dynamics AX Services.
But i always thought that is missed a few features, so now I am starting on this new version. (Download link
This is version 1.01 see change list at the end of the post.

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.

The program is tested for AX 2009 and AX 2012.

When you start the program this is what you will see:

On the left you will see the list of services that you have, and on the right the list of possible AX configurations.

Config menu.


Under the menu item, Tools/Config, you can change the programs settings.

Here you can add/remove computers to look for services on.

To remove a computer from the list, double click on the item.
To add a computer, input its name in the text box, and press the "Add" button, or enter.
The refresh field controls how often the service list will be refreshed.

Controlling services.


If you right click on an item in the service list, you will get this menu, where you can start, stop or restart a service.
You can also control a service by double clicking on it, double clicking on a started service will stop it, and on a stopped service it will start it.

Changing AX Config list.


If you right click on an item in the Config list, you will get this menu.












Edit:
Edit an existing configuration.

Delete:
Deletes the selected configuration.

Import from Registry:
Imports all AX configurations from the registry.

Import from Config file:
Imports one configuration from an AX configuration file.


Starting AX.

If you double click on an item in the Configs list, that Dynamics AX will be started.
This function requires that the right version of AX is installed on the machine.

Planned changes.

  1. Service list:
    1. Add a counter of online users on the AOS.
    2. Group services, so you can start, stop or restart an entire group in one go.
  2. Config list:
    1. Check if config's AOS is started, (Start if not)
Changlog.

1.01     : Save and Load AX Configuration list to file. (Done on start of program, and changes of list)
              Added for to Edit AX Configurations.
              Import of AX Configuration from .axc files.
              Made it possible to delete an AX Configuration from the list.
              Function to check last program version and do config cleanup.

    2. Manually change/add configurations.
    3. Save / Load configuration list.
    4. Check if config's AOS is started, (Start if not)

Show AX Compile progress (AXCompileProgressV1.00)

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)
