DIXF error [AX2012 CU8]

Issue: While Open Processing Group (Data import export framework/Area page/Common/Processing Group), system throws below error message.

Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.Framework.Tools.DMF.PreviewGrid, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.


Possible reason:

After a fresh installation of AX, we have DIXF as a module but we need to install additional component as well to use DIXF.
In this case we need to install DIXF client services from installation media.


Install DIXF client services from AX setup and restart the AOS services.
