Security Development Tool for Dynamics AX 2012: Issue with recording entry points

When the task recorder was introduced in cumulative updates for AX 2012 and AX 2012 R2, it introduced a bug in the ability to record business process flows and identify the entry points used of the Security Development Tool for AX 2012. The user would press ‘Start recording’ in the tool, click through a few menu items and click on ‘Stop Recording’. The expected behavior would be to see a list of all the menu items that were selected along the way. Instead, the user got a message “no entry points recorded.” 

A hotfix has been issued for this problem. Please download it from the following locations.

Ax 2012:
Ax 2012 R2:

Note that the fix is already built into AX 2012 R3 and no seperate patch will be required for that version.

Thank you for your patience on this issue and let us know if there are any more questions or concerns.

    Installing the hotfix for R2 on a vanilla AX 2012 R2 CU7 caused the @DMF label files to disappear entirely!

    Entered my email to get the hotfix yesterday (tried two different addresses), and still haven't received the hotfix.  My name no spaces at outlook dot com if anyone's got a link.
