To import Microsoft-signed model files into the baseline model store

  1. On the target system, import the Microsoft-signed model files that you received from Microsoft by using the AxUtil import command-line utility. For example, to import the Foundation model into the MicrosoftDynamicsAXBaseline model store, type the following command:

    AxUtil import /file:"Foundation.axmodel" /db:MicrosoftDynamicsAXBaseline

    For more information about the AxUtil import utility, see the help for AxUtil by typing AxUtil /?.

  2. After you have imported all of the Microsoft-signed models, continue with the next steps in the Model code upgrade checklist.


    You must first import the models that Microsoft owns. You can then import the remaining models one at a time, starting with the lowest layer.
