Dynamics NAV 2018 Image Library

26 Jan

A new version of Dynamics NAV requires a new version of the Dynamics NAV Image Library. Well, here it is! It is available for download at Mibuso.

This time I put a little more effort in the tool. Instead of just adding the images of Dynamics NAV 2018, I’ve also added some more features.

First of all, the images of Dynamics NAV 2018 are included (of course…). And because Dynamics 365 “Tenerife” (or: Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations Business Editions, for that matter) shares the codebase with Dynamics NAV 2018, the images are available in both products.


The file itself has been on a diet. The size has shrinked with 40%, but don’t worry, all images are in there. Images are now reused between version if they are unchanged and were not removed. It took a while to create a PowerShell script to compare thousands of images, but with great help from Waldo I managed to do this.

And this more efficient way of image handling leads to a new feature: show which files are new, changed or unchanged. I used to give an overview of changes in my blog posts, but now you can see the changes directly in the tool!


The last new feature is that the image library now contains the text styles and system indicators. From the first version in which they were introduced up to Dynamics NAV 2018.



Enjoy it!

    • The link is correct, but it takes a moment to be updated. That’s why I wrote ‘will be available anytime soon’. 😉

  2. It always crashes when I use the “Copy Name” command or do Ctrl+C.

  3. Hi,
    Thank you for this tool. It is a lifesaver.
    I’ve got a small feature request. Most of the time, we work with older NAV versions and it would be nice, if we could set a command line parameter to define which version is shown on startup.

  4. Hello, I came across your NAV icon Tool and I appreciate your work. It’s very nice. I have the following questions:
    1. I’m developing an MS-Access application which uses NAV 2016 and I’d like to use the layout and icons of NAV for the Access App. However I’m not sure if there is a copyright on the icons or are they free to use? Do you have an official Microsoft link to read about it?

    2. I’m missing some icons in your tool, for instance the icon for create/save as PDF. Where do I get all the icons?

    Thanks in advance for any help

    • I have no idea if the icons are free to use. But I wouldn’t be surprised if it is not allowed. On the other hand, I don’t expect they will be chasing you for using them… 😉
      To get the icons, I used a tool to extract them from the resource files.

  5. Thank you for your feedback. I have to discuss it with my customer. Maybe they can use it, since they have a NAV license.
