Team explorer is needed only if doing automatically resolve code conflicts.

Install “Team Explorer for Microsoft Visual Studio 2012” if not already installed

Make sure that you have restored the baseline database from a copy of the model database before running the code upgrade. The copy should be from immedialty before running the CU9 installer so shouldn't have any CU9 objects in it. Baseline database is like the "old" aod folder for earlier versions of AX.

Initialize the modelstore:
