How to: Install a Windows Client Control Add-in Assembly

Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client control add-ins are provided in one or more Microsoft Framework .NET–based assemblies, which are .dll files. Control add-in assemblies must be installed on the following computers:

  • Computers that are running the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client.

    Any Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client instance that will use the control add-ins, must be installed with the control add-in assemblies. Control add-in assemblies are not installed with the default Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client installation.

  • Computer that is running the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment.

    After a control add-in is installed, you use the development environment to register the control add-in the Client Add-in table in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV database and set it up on pages. For more information, see How to: Register a Windows Client Control Add-in and How to: Set Up a Windows Client Control Add-in on a Page.

To install control add-in assemblies on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client

  1. If needed, install the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client on the computer.

    For more information, see Deployment.

  2. On the computer that is running the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client, copy the assemblies that contain the control add-ins to the Add-ins folder of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows client installation.

    By default, the path of this folder is C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\71\RoleTailored Client\Add-ins.

    You can also include assemblies in a subfolder of the Add-ins folder. This can be useful if you have multiple assemblies and dependencies.

To install control add-in assemblies on the development environment computer

  1. If needed, install the development environment on the computer.

    For more information, see How to: Install C/SIDE Development Environment.

  2. On the computer that is running the development environment, create a folder named Add-in in the development environment installation folder.

    By default, the path of this folder is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\71\Classic. If the Add-in folder already exists, then ignore this step.

  3. Copy the assemblies that contain the control add-ins to the Add-ins folder.
