installation media: what decides whether workgroup or professional is installed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I installed from an installation media which reads like this:

    en_dynamics_crm_4.0_enterprise_professional_workgroup_x86_dvd_x14-23908.iso

    Now I figured this will cover it all. But where is it decided whether I get a workgroup or professional installation?
    I do not remember that I could make a choice somewhere within the installation procedure and in the end it turned out to be a workgroup installation which I do not need or want because the new button to add new users just disappears then after the fifth user has been added.

    So what can I do now? Uninstall and re-install? Will that work cleanly?

    How does a professional or enterprise installation media read?

    Thanks

    Andreas

  • All you need to do is to go to the Deployment Manager and add in the professional license key and it will upgrade you. There is no need to do a re-installation.

    The license key is pre-pidded on the CRM media. You just need to go the text file in the folder. I can't recollect offhand which path it is in.

  • Hello,

    OK, so I gave him my license key in deployment manager and it did change after all from workgroup to professional.

    The button new, however, in Settings, Administration, Users, is still gone.

    I did read here in this forum that once you set the registry key of

    AutoGroupManagementOff and perhaps VerfyDomainName

    in

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSCRM

    to 1 the button "new" would reappear. But even after restarting the server it did not reappear.

    Would s.o. have some other idea?

    Thx

  • Hi,

    so I applied the UpdateRollup12 but this did not change anything either.

    Still no button new, even though the license is accepted as a professional one.

    Sincerely

  • Andreas,

    Actually if I am not mistaken the post you are referencing was originated by me several months ago as we were doing the same thing for a local client. Initially the New User button didn't appear but after some time it did.

    Are you connecting from the server or from a client? Have you flushed the browser cache?
