The solution is here!
The developer documentation for Dynamics AX has moved to a continuing publishing model. This means more and more documentation topics will be available as they are written, and not as previously only when a new version is released.
However, despite good intentions, the developer documentation released with Dynamics AX currently primarily contains the boiler-plate: "At the time of publication, no information was available for this topic." This even happens for topics that were documented in previous versions.
The documentation teams at Microsoft have work hard on verifying, proof reading and moving topics into the Html help. Only topics they have signed off are available in the Dynamics AX 4.0 RTM.
If you, like me, prefer less-accurate information to no-information, the solution is here.
Attached is an xpo-file, that when imported, will tweak the help system's behavior: If a help topic actually is available in the Html Help it will be displayed, just like the normal behavior. However, if a topic in Html Help just contains the boiler-plate message, then the legacy help system will take over, and display the topic from the legacy system.
This provides three benefits:
The downsides are:
[Update: The attached solution now also supports the 4.0 SP1 help][Update2: The attached solution now also supports incorrectly mapped topics ]
