Upgrading to 2011 from 4.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi - I know its a little late in the game but we are looking to finally upgrade to CRM 2011 (on prem).  Can anyone give me a general idea of how long an upgrade usually takes and what the typical implementation costs are?  I'm not worried about licensing costs, I already received pricing for the 40 users we have. 

    We do have some javascript functions but no plugins. 

    Any approximate ideas on what to expect time wise would be appreciated!

  • You can take a look at this article for information on upgrading your JavaScript:

    It's hard to gauge how long upgrading code would take - depends on the amount and complexity. Then figure in additional time for testing. Tthere are also tools available to help with code upgrading - Dynamics XRM Tools

    Assuming you are moving from 32 bit to 64 bit servers figure in time to set up the new servers and get everything installed. 

    Depending on the size of your database, the actual upgrade could take several hours to perform.

    Also keep in mind time to upgrade any Outlook clients from 4.0 to 2011 (not required right away) and also any additional user training.
