Visual Studio 2010 and .Net 4.0 Passed Compatibility Testing with Dynamics AX

Recently, over at the Dynamics AX Sustained Engineering blog, a new post was done about recent compatibility testing that the sustained engineering team has been doing.

The link to that information can be found here.: New Compatibility Testing Results - March 2010

"Dynamics AX Sustained Engineering Team has completed the following compatibility tests for the new releases of the following external stack components... .NET 4 and Visual Studio 2010... Dynamics AX 4.0 SP2 and Dynamics AX 2009 Both 32 and 64 bits mode Clean install and side by side."

Now there are some other good test that were done, but I wanted to end the week with a post about Visual Studio 2010 and .Net 4.0. I am really impressed! I have been working with Visual Studio 2010 RC Ultimate Edt., and I love it!

I am running it on a Windows 7 64-bit machine. I am doing Cloud Development work, and also some targeted .Net 3.5 Framework work. I am really impressed with Visual Studio 2010.

It loads really fast, the sleek design is very appealing, and I have found easier to look at actually --- at least for my eyes --- than the older design and UI. I have also found the dubbger and IntelliTrace to be VERY handy.

So I am glad to see that the Sustained Engineering teams have giving Visual Studio 2010 and .Net 4.0 a go on compatibility testing. I will start to target future .Net assemblies to be referenced in Dynamics AX 4.0 SP2 and Above, with the .Net 4.0 framework, and try to take advantage of some of the newer features, like those offered with the Parrellel Computing Platform that's part of .Net 4.0 framework.

That's all for now, for real, but check back soon!

Hi Brandon,

I took a closer look at your link and noticed that VS 2010 doesn't not actually seems to be supported for AX Dev. It is supported "side by side". I would think it means that you can install VS2010 on an AX dev machine but can't use it for AX dev. Don't you ?
