Beginning with the July 2017 update, Microsoft is now pushing out a 64-bit version of Visual Studio Code. If you have an existing 32-bit version installed, you will not automatically be updated to the 64-bit version.
All you need to do though is manually uninstall your 32-bit version and install the 64-bit one. All of your existing extensions will be picked up by the new version and should continue to work.
Grab the 64-bit version here.
For those of you that have been trying out the Dynamics NAV Development Preview, you can now grab the AL language extension from the Visual Studio Code marketplace.
This will let you set up your local machine for coding and deploying extensions on the v2 platform. This version of the AL Language extension is not for coding against an on-prem NAV system. It requires a Dynamics 365 for Financials Sandbox tenant.
To get the AL Language extension, just do the following:
In Visual Studio Code, click the Extension icon at the left and in the search box at the top, type in AL
In the search results, select the AL Language extension, and click Install.
After it is installed, click the Reload button to reinitialize Visual Studio Code with your new extension.
That’s it! You can now connect your AL Language extension to your sandbox environment and code away!
As always, happy coding!
