CRM 2011: Web References and References in external applications that connect to CRM RRS feed

  • Question

  • When creating an application (C#, let's say a WCF service) to connect to Dynamics CRM 2011, do I need to add both my local dll reference files (Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.dll, Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.dll, etc.) AND "web references" to the service endpoints? Or, is this an either/or situation? Can someone kidly explain? It seems that if you're using the local references and the code authenticates in code to the endpoints, you don't need the web reference? If that is true, are there advantages/disadvantages either way?
