Install integration components

Integration components enable Microsoft Dynamics AX to integrate with external applications. Microsoft Dynamics AX components like Workflow and Enterprise Portal also use integration components to interact with the AOS. The integration components include the .NET Business Connector, AIF Web services, the BizTalk adapter, and the synchronization proxy and synchronization service for Microsoft Office Project.

You can install Microsoft Dynamics AX integration components after you have installed the base components and completed the initialization checklist.

Before you install, verify that your domain account has the correct permissions on each computer that you will install on. For more information, see Verify that you have the required permissions for installation.
