We have recently released the new version for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Data Import/Export Framework as part of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 CU7. We received lot of requests to get the new version for AX 2012 R2 (Base R2 and/or CU1, CU6, hotfixes) without taking full CU7. To make this happen, we have released an application hotfix for DIXF which can be installed on AX 2012 R2 (Base R2 and/or CU1, CU6, hotfixes).  The hotfix does not contain the binary files for the Data Import/Export Framework. You must install the binary files for the Data Import/Export Framework by using the CU7 update installer.

Application Components

The application hotfix contains the application files for the version of the Data Import/Export Framework that was released with cumulative update 7.

Important: This hotfix does not contain the binary files for the Data Import/Export Framework. You must install the binary files for the Data Import/Export Framework by using the CU7 update installer.
