visual studio crm project unavailable? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello - I just inherited a CRM project with a Visual Studio solution. The solution has a project that is not loading, I'm guessing due to the project type, which may require an install of some other software first?

    Sometimes I can google <ProjectTypeGuids> in the csproj file to figure out the project type and related setup required but for some reason the <ProjectTypeGuids> for this project doesn't seem to return any meaningful results?:


    Based on this <ProjectTypeGuids> guid, can you identify what type of project this is or why VS2012 is not able to load it?  Next to the project in the solution it says "(load failed)" and underneath the project it says "The project file was unloaded"?

  • Hi dotnetteramg123,

                    Download the CRM SDK from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24004

    Inside the SDK look into the folder sdk\tools\developertoolkit and install the crmdevelopertoolsvs12_installer.msi for VS 2012 or crmdevelopertools_installer.msi for VS 2010

    That will add the CRM project templates to your visual studio
