Dynamics AX 2012 RTM Hyper-V

The new version of Dynamics AX 2012 looks very nice, and it can be downloaded from Mircosoft partner source.

But one of the initial reactions to the released hyper-V, was that I experienced that the performance was poor. I especially saw that refreshing forms took several seconds. We quickly saw that it was not lack of hardware, because the hyper-v was allocated with 16 Gb ram, 4 CPU cores and a raid for disk.

But I found a solution that worked perfectly for me :

Then the AX 2012 RTM on hyper-V started to live up to its claim of 20 times increase in performance compared to AX 2009 on selected areas.

Try it.

  1. Hi Kurt

    Are you using Remote Desktop to remote in to the hyper-v image?
    If so, I suspect you might be seeing a specific issue with RDS. On some configurations (I have seen it with Win7 and Vista) when remoting in you have to use 24-bit color depth instead of 32-bit. Using 32-bit will result in very slow UI peformance like you describe here.
    When we encountered this I did some research and found it to be a known issue in some Windows versions. Try setting the color depth of your remote desktop connection to 24-bit and see if that achieves the same result…
