Crm 2011: Outlook Client Installation (coming RU9) installation without internet RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hy

    We need to install the coming outlook client (RU9) as a package without internet connection on the clients of our customer. So we need the installation with all the prerequisites, so that no internet connection is necessary to install the outlook client.

    Where can I get this?

    Thanks for your help,

    Peter

  • Hi Peter,

    The UR9 is still in beta.

    The beta version of the upcoming update to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011, Update Rollup 9 (UR9), also known as “CRM Anywhere”, was released on May 9, 2012. To access the beta version, you must first register and complete a survey on the UR9 Beta Connect site. Once you have completed the survey, you can download the UR9 beta, as well as an implementation guide, from Microsoft Connect Downloads.

    There is a separate outlook client install from Microsoft site once the final full version is released. There is no complete outlook UR9 package with requisites. The most important pre requisite is the previous roll up number you would need installed.

    In case if you need an prerequisites, hopefully during installation outlook client UR9 will inform you and the setup will stop there. So you don't have to worry.

    When the Microsoft final version of UR 9 is released, you can download from Microsoft site (the link can be searched on Google). Then you can install it on your clients without the need of Internet. I hope this helps.

    I hope this helps. If my response answered your question, please mark the response as an answer and also vote as helpful.

  • Peter,

    Once the RTM version of RU9 is released, you should be able to install it without internet connection. I think the only pre-requisites is .NET Framework 4 (which you can download the full redistributable) and the SQL Server Express (which you can also download the redistributable version).

    The RTM version should not be too far off. They have released the beta and currently just ironing out some of the issues.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi Peter,

    Please refer to this blog post for details. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/crminthefield/archive/2011/11/07/how-to-install-microsoft-dynamics-crm-2011-without-an-internet-connection.aspx

    You need to put all the redistributables in a specific folder structure for it to get picked up by the Outlook Client installer.

    I hope this helps. If my response answered your question, please mark the response as an answer and also vote as helpful.

  • Hi Peter,

    Whenever Microsoft releases any Rollup, on the download page it comes with a link to it's Microsoft Knowledge Base article. This has the pre requisites.

    For example the Microsoft Knowledge Base article for Roll Up 8 having the pre requisites is:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=2600644

    So the only pre requisite for outlook client rollup 8 is "You must have Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Update Rollup 6 (build 5.0.9690.1992) installed to apply this update rollup".

    Same way, when you will download the latest roll up 9, please refer at that time to the Microsoft Knowledge Base article.

    To confirm, the .NET Framework 4 is not a pre requisite for the CRM 2011 outlook RU component.

    I hope this helps. If my responses answered your question, please mark all the responses as an answer and also vote them as helpful.
