Complete the following procedure to run the initialization checklist without user interaction.

  1. On the Microsoft Dynamics AX client, create an XML file.

  2. Add tags to the XML file specifying the following parameters:

    • Microsoft Dynamics AX version.

    • Name and location of the log file.

    • Each checklist item to be run along with the appropriate attributes.

      The XML file syntax is described in the documentation for the SysAutoRun class. For more information, see SysAutoRun.

  3. Open a command prompt and type the following:

    ax32.exe –StartupCmd=AutoRun_c:\PathToFile\FileName.XML

    The XML code allows you to skip steps that are marked as mandatory.
