Setup Error during upgrade from 3.0 to 4.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

     

    I am preparing to upgrade our system from MS CRM 3.0 to 4.0 in a test environment.

     

    Setup runs fine until I click next after downloading and installing any required components, then setup crashes and the following message appears.

     

    The type initializer for 'Microsoft.Crm.LocatorService' threw an exception.
    The type initializer for 'Microsoft.Crm.ServerLocatorService' threw an
    exception.
    Input string was not in a correct format.

    This appears to be a bug, or it might be my configuration that's causing the problem.

     

    Has anyone experienced this before?

     

    Does anyone know cause and solution?

  • I uninstalled CRM 3.0 and attempted to do a clean install of CRM 4.0

     

    The same error still occurs, this means it is not my customizations or workflow.

     

    The error is caused possibly by a server configuration issue. - what it is I do not know.

     

    I am just going to start again.

     

    Thank you for all your help.
