crm plugin registration tool, error when connecting RRS feed

  • Question

  • When using the registration tool, the first thing is to enter a new connection.  I fill in the label then, whether I fill in the other fields or not, i get the following error when clicking either Connect or Save

    ************** Exception Text **************
    System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\Connections.config' is denied.

       at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.WndProc(Message& m)
       at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam)

    If I choose to Continue, then the tool appears to work, but it means that I can never save a connection and I have to enter it each time.

    Note: I have another problem, listed under a different question, which occurs later on.

  • Hi

    Look like you have stored the plugin registration tool in TFS. Please can you make sure that Connections.config has readonly attribute removed.

    Go to this path C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\Connections.config

    Right Click Connections.config -> properties -> general Tabl -> uncheck the Reoadonly attribute
