Microsoft Dynamics 365 Blog

Not too long ago I was installing a Dynamics AX 4.0 AOS on a 64bit Windows Server 2008.

After the Dynamics AX Setup was finished I was however unable to start the Server Configuration Utility because of the following error:

Activation context generation failed for dla “C:\DYNAX\40\Server\Common\AxSrvCfg.exe”. Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC80.MFC,processorArchitecture=”x86″,publicKeyToken=”1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b”,type=”win32″,version=”8.0.50727.42″ could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.

The reason for this message issue was that the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x64) was not installed on the Server. After installing, the error did no longer occur.

We're always looking for feedback and would like to hear from you. Please head to the Dynamics 365 Community to start a discussion, ask questions, and tell us what you think!
