Installing MS Dyn CRM 4.0 for Outlook on to the server where the Dynamics CRM Server has been installed. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Seems that there is a problem in doing this (correct?). I get a message saying that I should install this MS Dyn CRm Oultook client to a different location (or server). Can someone give me some advice as to what I am doing wrong for this "client" install on this server or what they did if they encountered the same problem.

     

    My environment is:

     

    Windows 2003 Server Standard

    MS Office 2007 has been installed (includes Outlook 2007)

    MS Dynamics 4.0 Server installed (system can be accessed from workstations in good order)

    MS SQL Server for Workgroup Edition is the SQL platfor running our CRM

     

    Any replies will be greatly appreciated.

  • One thing is to change the default installation location of the server.  Both will default to c:/program files/Microsoft Dynamics CRM (Or something like that).  I was able to make it work by changing the server install location to something like CRM Server.

    Dear william,

     

    Best approach is install outlook client on client PC's not on server. as server have exchange and IIS running for MS CRM so it will not allow this.

     

    For more see MS CRM Implementation guide
