  • Hi,

    When you say solutions, do you mean CRM 2011 solutions OR Visual Studio solutions? If you are referring to CRM solutions, then only CRM 2011 has the concept of solutions. CRM 4.0 doesn't have solutions. Solutions were introduced in CRM 2011.

    You can learn creating plugins in CRM 4 and CRM 2011. There are lots of differences. I would advise that you learn in the latest CRM 2011 unless you are working on a CRM 4.0 project.

    The best way is to Google yourself and also refer to CRM 4.0 and CRM 2011 SDK. SDK is a Microsoft kit having all the CRM development detailed. My advise would be to prefer searching Google and benefit from online examples than books. Having said that there are good books which you can have a look at amazon and read what other buyers have said about that book (buyers comments).
