Instead of simply installing and deploying the AOT package, ensure that the following new objects/dll-files are added to TFS:

  • LACSupport.dll.config

  • XmlDiffPatch.dll

  • XmlDiffPath.View.dll


The following image details the complete list of objects which are not automatically added:


The version-number should contain version 6.18.2 such as the following after either installing or deploying the AOT-package. To check this, navigate to Modules > Lasernet > Setup > Parameters:


Version numbers: 

PU52: 6.18.2.2212095

PU53: 6.18.2.2212094

PU54 : 6.18.2.2212096


To access and add the AOT package:

  • Through LCS: Apply a deployable package to an environment 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/unified-operations/dev-itpro/deployment/apply-deployable-package-system 

  • Through installing a deployable package: Requires RDP access to environment 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/unified-operations/dev-itpro/deployment/install-deployable-package

LAC365FO version 6.18.2 is supported with Lasernet 9 and Lasernet 10. A setup for either Lasernet 9 or Lasernet 10 is required for any new installation and when upgrading from Lasernet 8.


Pre-Requisite / Technical

It is best practice to do a Stylesheet refresh after upgrading LAC365FO as this helps avoid any potential issue(s).

Please also use the following Register selection classes located in Lasernet > Setup > Backup parameters > Setup Default Selections in case an error like the following occurs when Export, Import or Copy across companies (legal entities) are used.

The new upgrade framework in LAC365FO version 6.18.1 should function well but could fail in a scenario when a TFS/Dev build is used as this would require the execution of Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.Deployment.Setup.exe.


Error message

The following message may appear:

Please try to run ’Register selection-classes’ before processing
OR

Cannot create a record in Lasernet default export/import selection(LACDefaultSelection). The record already exists.




Enhancements – LAC365FO version 6.18.2

LAC365FO version 6.18.2 is a quality update for LAC365FO version 6.18.1.

The main focus in LAC365FO version 6.18.2 is:

·        Quality

·        Reliability

·        Stability

·        Performance


Which is provided through the following fixes and enhancements in LAC365FO version 6.18.2:  

316458@LAC365FO – T&P - Test of query reports

Using a Query as checkpoint for the XML comparison did fail.

This is fixed in LAC365FO version 6.18.2.


326367@LAC365FO – LAC SSRS report - Printing to non-Screen destination - tries to open Viewer as for Screen destination

Using a non-Screen destination for a ‘LAC SSRS’ (report which is rendered through SSRS/Reporting Server as PDF) did try to open the report Viewer as though the screen was used as destination.


Error

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

This is fixed.



326749@LAC365FO – LAC 6.18.1 Conditions Issue On Lasernet Server

The following sequence/order is shown in the setup of the Lasernet servers:

This has been added to ensure that it is possible and easy to identify (see) the sequence (order/priority) of the servers.

A Lasernet Server is found by running through the sequence (order) and by finding a server for which the condition for a server is met.

Afterward, it will use the first server on the list without any condition in case none of the Lasernet Servers with a condition was found – this Lasernet Server will get used as a Default server (fallback).



328428@LAC365FO – Error if SSRS report is set up to 'Let SSRS render PDF' and value in 'Subfolder mask' is added

The following error was displayed when using the File/Subfolder mask for a report in which ‘Let SSRS render PDF’ was used.


When using Let SSRS render PDF and when using a Subfolder mask.


Error

Unable rebuild file object form xml node, expected:

This is fixed.


328875@LAC365FO – Issues after URL encoding of XmlFileStorage and OutputFileStorage in 6.18.1

A report which was using the File/Subfolder mask wasn’t properly saved within the proper “subfolder”.

A report for which the Subfolder mask was used/defined


Was saving the files (XML/PDF-Files) within the root and not the proper subfolder-structure


The issue was caused as files were URL-encoded in LAC365FO version 6.18.1.

LAC365FO version 6.18.2 will try to preview/use documents located in the proper folder and hereafter try to find the document in the root in case it wasn’t found within the subfolder.

A task providing the option to move the documents from the root into the subfolder (defined in the File/Folder-mask) is introduced in LAC365FO version 6.18.2.

The task is located in Lasernet > Parameters > GeneralFix 6.18.1 file name issues and will run across all legal entities/companies in Dynamics D365FO.

Please start by running this task within a DEV/TEST environment before running the task in PROD.



Running without any of the checkmarks will move all incorrectly saved files from the root into the proper sub-folder(s) across all companies in Dynamics D365FO.


Only find the first matching entry

It will only show the first file found in the root (only the first file (XML or PDF) which shouldn’t be saved in root)


Only process first matching entry

Will only move first file found in root (only first file (XML or PDF) which shouldn’t be saved in root)


Running without any checkmarks

This will move all files found in the root (only files that shouldn’t be saved in the root)



328883@LAC365FO – Check if the additional index is required when opening LAC-Archive from the Reports (Issue with +RecId)

An additional index has been added for the Lasernet Archive.

This Index has been added to ensure better performance when opening the Lasernet Archive from the Lasernet reports and when having many entries/records within the Archive.


323211@LAC365FO – Attachments have an issue on SharePoint when the file name contains Danish characters

A warning was displayed when using an attachment for which the filename contains Danish characters.

This warning is removed.
