CRM 2011 - Plugin Registration Tool Not Opening.

    Question

  • Hi Forum,

    I am testing my first CRM 2011 plugin and following are my steps. (This is on premise installation)

    1. Built test plugin assembly with VS 2010 on local machine

    2.  Complied it, signi it and copied assembly to "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM\Server\bin\assembly" on CRM dev server.

    3. Build Plugin Registration tool on my local machine and then copied  Pluginregistration.exe on CRM server's desktop.

    4. When I tried to open it , it says "Plugin Registration Tool has stopped Working". it doesn't even open the tool.

    My local machine is Win7 32 bit and my CRM server is 2008 R2 with 64 bit. Is this is a problem ??

    Also, on my CRM server CRM 4 plugin registration tool exist as well and it's working fine. Hope this is not an issue either.

    Following is error details from Event Viewer

  • It needs all the dll to run. You should copy connection file too. It will remember your connection info.

    Create a folder and following files in it.

    I hope this helps.
