Automatically Running AX As The Administrator To Enable Advanced Mode Recordings In The Task Recorder

Posted by Author, Curator, Visually Impared Squirrel Literacy Advocate & Dynamics AX Technical Solution Professional (TSP) at Microsoft on

If you are using the new Task Recorder within Dynamics AX and are running it in Advanced mode then you may have noticed that you need to run the client as the administrator before you can record any task recordings. If you are like me, you never go to the trouble of starting AX in that mode, which means that when you try to record a task you get the following reminder and you then have to exit AX restart the client in Administrator mode.

Stop the insanity! Here is a quick trick that you can use to always start up AX as the administrator.

Just right-mouse-click on the Dynamics AX shortcut and select the Properties menu item. 

When the Properties dialog box is displayed, select the Compatibility tab. 

Now just check the Run This Program As An Administrator checkbox and click on the OK button.

Now whenever you start up AX you will be running as an Administrator and you won’t get blocked every time you want to run a task recording.
