  • Mostafa,

    Use the KB Carlos referenced, do not uninstall CRM!

    A typical mistake people make when using the IFD wizard is to ignore step 2. This is not a suggestion in the KB, it is required. The Wizard will not run properly if it is in any other folder besides the tools folder. Also when you extract it, make sure it is in the root of the tools folder, not one level down under the zip file folder.

    On the computer that is running the server installation of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0, extract the tool to the following folder:

    <var>drive</var>:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM\Tools

  • Hello Mostafa,

    Actually, IFD is something you do over on premise deployment.

    IFD is a way to give aceess to users over the internet, but not using windows authentication. Instead of this, they give their usernames and passwords on a form.

    Take a look on http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948779/en-us
