CRM 4.0 - Outlook Client - Does a bundled installer exist? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just going through the testing phase of our v3 - v4 upgrade, and using the Outlook Client as provided on the CRM 4 media.

    It frustrates me that despite having the media, the install process still needs to download the C++ runtime, and SQL 2005 software as part of the Outlook Client install process. I'd love to know why weren't these included in the install package in the first place? It's a waste of bandwith/traffic, and adds unnecessary time to the install.

    Does anyone know if a version of the Outlook Client installer exists that includes the C++ and SQL install components?

    Or, does anyone know of a way to get the Client installer to use a local/network copy of these components, rather than downloading them each time?

    Appreciate any feedback.
