    If you e-mail it bounces with an access denied message.

    I‘m curious why you guys went with Windows Server 2008 and not the R2 version on Refresh 3.5? Also, why did you choose Virtual PC 2007 and not Windows Virtual PC?

    When will the Refresh 4.0 download links be available?

  2. Nóri says:

    You can ignore the question regarding using R2 on VPC 2007. Just realized that R2 is 64 bit only.

  3. Guy says:

    Will these be made available on CustomerSource?

    Guys I have found the problem with the Role Center on VPC refresh 3.5. Go to Administrative Tools and open the Microsoft Dynamics Ax Configuration and select in the Configuration Tarjet select Business Connector and as you can see the configuration selected is AXRetail and most of us did not attach the Retail disk, you only have to select AX593 and press apply. Then try again with the Role Center.

    Hope it work for you too.
