    Hi,

    We have added some 4 new buttons to CRM forms ( Contact, Account, Lead and Phone Call Activity forms).

    We are using Installshield Devstudio 9 as a packaging tool.

    What are the different ways in which i can deploy the new buttons added in the CRM forms on the clients CRM Server?

    Regards,

  • Basically you need to import the ISV.config file to move your customization dev server to client CRM server.

    Here are the different ways you can use:

    1. You can use standard .net code to import customization. CRM 4.0 has ImportExportPublish message, using this message you can import customization. You can find sample code at SDK\Server\FullSample\ImportExportPublish. I am not sure how would you call custom .net code using Installshield     but there should to some way do do it.

    2. You can simply import the ISV file  using customization. Settings-->Customization-->Import Customization

    Hi,

    Thanks for the solution.

    I am planning to develop an console application which will import the customizations and publish in client CRM Server.

    In Installshield, we can launch this console application. 

    Is this way of doing things fine?

    Regards,
