Object Server 01: The license information can not be decoded.


AX 2012 AOS Service is not starting and I am getting the following error

"Object Server 01:  The license information can not be decoded. "

This is mainly because of permissions, I gave admin rights to AOS service account and it worked.

Question:How can i convert my Dynamics AX 2009 reporting libraries to be usable in Dynamics AX 2012?Answer:In order to use the Reporting Libraries from 2009 in 2012 use the following steps,1- Use the upgrade reports command line that comes with AX 2012 , normally located at C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\tools, to upgrade the reporting libraries to current format.

2- Open the business logic project created after the step above , compile and add the business logic to AOT.

3- Open the reporting project and change the business logic to be using the new business logic.

4- Compile the project, add to AOT and deploy to SSRS.

Question: How can i print all elements of a main menu.

Answer: Use the following job, 

static void menuPrint(Args _args)

    SysDictMenu menu;
    SysExcelWorksheetHelper worksheetHelper;
    SysExcelHelper sysExcelHelper;
    SysExcelWorksheet worksheet;
    str menuToPrint;
    str worksheetName;
    int currentRow = 1;
    str fileName;
    str path;

    void reportLevel(SysDictMenu _sysDictMenu)

        SysMenuEnumerator enumerator;

        if(_sysDictMenu.isMenuReference() || _sysDictMenu.isMenu())
            path += _sysDictMenu.label() + "//";
            enumerator = _sysDictMenu.getEnumerator();
            while (enumerator.moveNext())
        {   currentRow ++;
            worksheetHelper.setCellValue(2, currentRow, _sysDictMenu.label());
            path = "";


    sysExcelHelper = SysExcelHelper::construct();

    menuToPrint = 'Roster';
    worksheetName = menuToPrint;
    worksheet = sysExcelHelper.addWorksheet(worksheetName);
    worksheetHelper = SysExcelWorksheetHelper::construct(worksheet);
    // Populate the header row with the appropriate field labels and format the columns
    worksheetHelper.addColumn(1, "Path", Types::String);
    worksheetHelper.addColumn(2, "Item", Types::String);
    worksheetHelper.addColumn(3, "Status", Types::String);
    worksheetHelper.addColumn(4, "Assigned To", Types::String);
    worksheetHelper.addColumn(5, "Notes", Types::String);

    // Generate the file using the current UTC date time (without the ‘:’ character)
    // since it is not allowed for file names.
    fileName =  "C:\\Windows\\Temp\\ExportToExcel.xlsx";;

Read / Write Files from document handling

How can you read / writes files from document handling?


void fromFolderToDB(FilePath _path)
System.IO.DirectoryInfo         dir = new
System.IO.FileInfo[]            files;
System.IO.FileInfo              curFile;
System.Collections.IEnumerator  enumerator;
BinData                         binData;
DocuValue                       docuValue;
files = dir.GetFiles(_path);
enumerator = files.GetEnumerator();
while (enumerator.MoveNext())
curFile = enumerator.get_Current();
binData.loadFile(curFile.get_FullName());   // get file content
docuValue.File      = binData.getData();
docuValue.FileName  = curFile.get_Name();
docuValue.insert(); // insert into DB
void fromDBToFolder(FilePath _path)
BinData                         binData;
DocuValue                       docuValue;
while select docuValue // load From DB
binData.saveFile(docuValue.FileName); // insert into file system
Make attention to CodeAccessPermission when reading/writing to file system
and when using CLR inside X++
