  • Hi David,

    webservices and their use are different in CRM 4.0 and CRM 2011.

    Unfortunately, I am not sure what exactly you want to achieve, since you neither state the version you use nor the language, nor your exact intent.

    I am just assuming now that you want to be able to access the CRM Webservices from Visual Studio in C# in Version 2011.

    For that, check out the SDK quickstart project in samplecode/cs/quickstart

    This project

    - authenticates against the server
    - connects to the discovery service to get a list of organizations
    - creates an organizationservice and performs basic operations over the webservice

    and all from a console application.

    That was the best place to start for me. Maybe it helps you, too.

  • Thanks a lot crmdev2011, your link was very helpful. Jan , I checked the sample code you refered me to. I'm working with MS CRM 2011 and  I intend to write a crm webservice (using C#)that can be called by a third-party application to create a contact in CRM without necessarily inputting data through webforms. Do you have any more ideas?
