Updated: May 1, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Note Note

This topic has been updated to include information about features that were added or changed in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, and Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3.

Some optional features of Microsoft Dynamics AX require that additional XPO files be installed before preprocessing for a data upgrade can start. We recommend that you import these files only if the associated feature is installed on your source Microsoft Dynamics AX system, and you want to migrate the data for the feature to AX 2012. The XPO files contain upgrade scripts and forms that are required to prepare the data in your source system for upgrade. These optional XPO files must be installed after the XPO files for the upgrade framework have been installed.

This topic describes the XPO files for optional features of Microsoft Dynamics AX. The topic also describes the XPO files that are related to batch processing. These files are used to roll back any customizations that you have made to your batch processing class.

The XPO files for optional features, just like the XPO files for the upgrade framework, are specific to an earlier version of Microsoft Dynamics AX. The correct version is indicated in the file name as follows:

  • AX 4.0: “AX4” or “AX40”

  • AX 2009: “AX5” or “AX50”

All these files are located in the DatabaseUpgrade\XPO folder on the installation media.
