In Dynamics AX 2012 R3 CU8 we released checkout controls. In order to create and browse test website using these integrated controls please follow these steps:

Go to Demo VM

  • Go to “my documents” and then open folder “retail SDK CU8”
  • Open solution file located at “\Online Channel\Clients\Web\Storefront\ Web.Storefront.sln” in VS 2013
  • Create strong name key named as “strongnamekey.snk” and place it adjacent to bldver.cs file
  • Compile your project and publish it to a folder
  • Grab that published folder and create new website in IIS in demo machine
  • Make sure app-pool account is “contoso\administrator”
  • Now go to the folder where site is running and open commerceruntime.config and change defaultOperatingUnitNumber value to 068

<storage defaultOperatingUnitNumber=”068″ />

  • Open web.config and change database connection string

<add name=”CommerceRuntimeConnectionString” connectionString=”Server=localhost;Database=RetailContosoStore;Trusted_Connection=Yes”/>

  • Same web.config replace section below with <<Put correct strong name key you created above>>

<section name=”ecommerceControls” type=”Microsoft.Dynamics.Retail.Ecommerce.Sdk.Controls.ControlsSection,Microsoft.Dynamics.Retail.Ecommerce.Sdk.Controls, Version=,
Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=fd6b8d0172171ea7, processorArchitecture=MSIL”/>

  • Open browser and browse to new website just created.
