You receive the following error message when you try to deploy Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 reports. You see the following error in the log file:

Microsoft Dynamics AX Reporting Project Deployment: ClrBridgeLoader: fatal error:

Microsoft.Dynamics.ClrBridge.dll cannot be loaded. Fatal error: ClrBridge is not loaded.


This behavior is caused because Microsoft.Dynamics.BusinessConnectorNet in GAC (:\Windows\Assembly folder) is not at the same version as the AX kernel version. For example: AX kernel is version 5.0.1000.52 (AX 2009 SP1) but the Microsoft.Dynamics.BusinessConnectorNet is version 5.0.593.0 (RTM)


Apply Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 SP1 on the machine you are deploying the reports from. You should then see AX SP1 installer detected that .NET Business Connector needed to be updated. When this is done, validate that the Microsoft.Dynamics.BusinessConnectorNet is now at version 5.0.1000.52 (the same as your AX kernel). In Windows Explorer, locate this file in :\Windows\System32 folder, right click the file, click Properties, and then click the Version tab. The File version should be 5.0.1000.52 or the same as your AX32Serv.exe file version.
