DEV_CreateNewProject tool version 2.0.0

Hello, everyone.

I finally got down to moving the latest version of this tool to Dynamics AX 4.0.
Now there is only one project for both versions (3.0 and 4.0)

If you haven't seen this project before, you are welcome to visit the homepage, which contains a description of the features, screenshots, installation instructions and more.

The download link with the new project is:
DEV_CreateNewProject version 2.0.0

Important:
The project was renamed to fit the naming conventions of Dynamics AX. The new name is DEV_CreateNewProject.

(If you want, you can remove the previous version (AxCreateNewProject)).
Leaving them in your application WILL NOT have unwanted effects on your system


Also, I would like to share some knowledge that came upon me today with you.
This might not seem strange to you, but it sure was a surprise for me.
While testing the new version in Dynamics AX 4.0 SP2, I noticed that the form size and position are not saved when I press OK in it.
I dug deeper into system classes and found one extra condition that was added before any data for the form is saved.

The extra condition is:
The AllowUserSetup property on form design must be Restricted or Yes.

So you should keep this in mind when developing forms in the future.

Well, have a great day, all of you.
And do try out the new DEV_CreateNewProject version.
