Using CRM tasks in Outlook causes it to freeze or causes error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our setup

     CRM 4.0 with rollup 4

    Windows 2003 SP2 terminal server with Outlook 2003 SP3

    Workstations XP Pro with Outlook 2007 SP2

    When we create a CRM task in Outlook 2003 on the term server, Outlook will freeze or create an error “This record is read-only in Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Changes will not be synchronized to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM system.”

    We can create a CRM task in the Outlook CRM folder with no issues, and we can create an Outlook task in Outlook with no issues.

    So it’s only an issue when creating a CRM task in Outlook and trying to use that task in the Outlook tasks area.

    We have no issues using tasks of any kind on the workstations in Outlook 2007.

  • Rollup 4 had several issues with certain records being tracked.  I would recommend that you go to at least rollup 6.

    Also, I believe it was in rollup 2 or 3 there was a fix that affected Citrix/terminal server implementations that reduced the amount of memory used by the Outlook client.  this would also be included in rollup 4 as they are cumulative; however, it requires a registry change to activate this change--see the KB article of any of the rollups for details.
