Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 Virtual Machine is available

Microsoft has released the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 demo machine. Download is available at partnersource and customersource.
Early in Macy 2014 Microsoft release Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 and can also be downloaded from the links mentioned in my previous post . At that time the application was general available and could be installed using the Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 setup files or you could deploy a virtual machine on Azure.
This demo virtual machine can now be run at your own hardware using hyper-V as earlier demo machines versions use to run. However, this AX 2012 R3 demo machine is upgraded with latest Microsoft stack:
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • SQL Server 2014
  • SharePoint 2013 with SP1
  • Office 2013 with SP1
You can download the machine from either Customersource or Partnersource. 


  1. Thanks Faisal.. I am nw downloading R3-CU9 vm from the link given by you...I would like also request you to let me know if you can have any dumps for certifications of R3 in T&L or in Production.

  2. This is a demo, so please make it available for normal developers(not partners), so more people can know your products and use them, and advice them for their work, like what you do to students, you give them professional development tools for free, so when they graduate and have jobs, they will advice their managers to use ms stack.


I will appreciate your comments !
