Import CRM 4 Organization into CRM 2011 (update rollup 12) fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to import an organization from CRM 4 into CRM 2011 where update rollup 12 has been applied.

    It fails with this exception: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation

    Can anyone tell me what the problem is please?

    Using tracing I get this in the log file

  • What update rollup do you have installed? Microsoft recommends upgrading from the most recent update rollup version.


    I recently had an error free upgrade from CRM 4.0 UR 13 to CRM 2011 UR 12 on an internal test machine.

    Have you done any unsupported customizations or changes to your CRM?

  • We are trying to go from CRM 4 UR 12 to CRM 2011 UR 12.

    Our CRM is heavily customised, but I don't think there's anything unsupported.

  • That was quite a while ago! I think it was a data issue - we did a fresh export of the CRM 4 database and tried again. It did eventually work.

    Sorry I can't be more help - there was a lot of trial and error involved I'm afraid. Good luck!
