Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

The default current layer that is used by Microsoft Dynamics AX is set during the client installation. By default, the current layer is set to USR. This topic describes how to change the current layer from USR to another layer when Microsoft Dynamics AX is started.

To change the current layer:

  1. Click Start, point to Control Panel, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012  Configuration. The Microsoft Dynamics AX  Configuration Utility opens.

  2. In the Microsoft Dynamics AX  Configuration Utility, click Manage, and then click Create configuration. The Create Configuration window opens.

  3. In the Configuration name field, enter a name for the configuration, and then click OK. The Create Configuration window closes.

  4. On the Developer tab, in the Application object layer to open field, select a new layer from the drop-down list.

  5. Click OK to save the configuration. The Microsoft Dynamics AX  Configuration Utility window closes.

  6. Close and restart the client in the new layer.

For information about how to set the current model, see How to: Specify the Current Model.
