"The specified client configuration does not contain valid WCF settings". We often encounter this error when we create new client configurations for Dynamics AX. These are the steps which i followed to solve. 



This error was only encountered in AX 2012.  It is because of an issue with a new feature in the AX configuration file that needs to be fixed through the configuration utility.  Do the following to fix the issue:
  1. Open the .axc where this issue was being seen in the Microsoft Dynamics AX Configuration Utility.
  2. Click on the 'Connection' tab
  3. Click on the 'Refresh' button and wait for the proces to complete.
  4. Click on the 'Configure Services' button'
  5. You will now see the info message in Figure 2. Click 'Ok'
  6. You will now see the info message in Figure 3. Click 'Yes'
  7. You will now see the info message in Figure 4. Wait for the process to finish.
  8. You will now see the info message in Figure 5. Click 'Ok'
  9. A new window for Microsoft Service Configuration Editor will appear (Figure 6 below).  You can close this screen.
  10. Save this configuration
  11. Open the config file and verify there is an XML section of the file (Figure 7 below).
  12. Replace the config file in all the user's desktop with the new one.
