CRM 2011 for Outlook on Terminal Server 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Did anyone tried to install CRM 2011 client for Outlook on terminal server 2012? Which issues can this cause? We are using TS 2012 and want to know is this possible. 

    Did anyone tried with TS 2008 R2? Which issues can We expect and is this recommended by Microsoft (TS 2008 R2 or TS 2012)?

  • ive done it with 2008R2, no problems at all apart from having to enable the addin in outlook for the users. whether that can be done by the user depends on what kind of permissions you have applied to them in the TS to begin with

    cant say if its as simple on 2012 though

  • We're also using Windows Server 2012 with RDS. It doesn't seem that CRM 2011 client can be installed on it. It says the OS doesn't meet the requirement. Changing compatibility settings to Windows 7 doesn't help either.

  • Year old thread, but thought I would respond with another possible solution for those still on CRM 2011. 

    I needed to install the client on Server 2012 R2 Datacenter, and ran into the same issue.  To get around it, I did a right-click on SetupClient from the CRM installation folder and selected Troubleshoot Compatibility.  I let it detect issues (Try Recommended Settings), then when it was ready, I did the "Test the program" button, which ran the install just fine.  It's been working fine now for 2 months.

    Note - it will fail on the install of Windows Identity Foundation during the CRM installation.  You will need to install WIF 3.5 from Turn Windows Features on/off prior to running CRM install.
