  •  Xrm.Client is not anymore inside the 2016 SDK because they are moving to the Xrm.Tooling framework namespace and methods

    But you can still use the Xrm.Client dll from the CRM 2015 SDK

  • Why are they moving to Xrm.Tooling framework? What equivalent methods should I be using now. Sometimes I really do not understand Microsoft decisions.

  • There's no one single reason for the move to Xrm.Tooling, but the main technical one is to support OAuth. The transition to Xrm.Tooling can be done over several versions - i.e. you could move your code to Xrm.Tooling with CRM 2016, or you could continue to use the CRM 2015 SDK.

    As to the methods to use, it depends what you're doing, but you can use the ExecuteCrmOrganizationRequest method to continue to use all OrganizationRequest classes

  • If you still need I suggest you look in Nuget packages and download.
