“AX client execution of ‘Executing CIL generation’ timed out” TFS build

I was setting up a new build definition for my project and was facing the exception of Time out error “AX client execution of ‘Executing CIL generation’ timed out”

Initially I assumed that there should be some issue in Ax CIL and tried few troubleshooting steps

1.Increased the execution time of CIL in build from 60 minutes to 180 minutes.

2.Launching manual full CIL from my login . It completed without any errors.

Then I tried logging on to build account credentials . When Ax is launched , customer experience dialog pop up displayed. So I understood this window was blocking the CIL step.

Clicked ok and took a back up of the database (Reason being this latest database has the option of not displaying additional dialogs from this login). Then used this database as staging database.

Amazing.. It worked. 🙂

In order to avoid any additional dialogs to be displayed when Ax launched, set the field “SQLEnabled” from SysUserInfo table .
