CRM outlook client - popup blocker issue

Link to post
"CRM window was unable to open, and may have been blocked by a pop-up blocker"
Face an issue where the outlook client prompt me popup blocker when I try to open a records via outlook.
If you confirm that all trusted site setting and windows credential set correctly but still can't solve the issue.
Here is how I solve the issue, (already confirm that IE browser can open the record correct!)
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
  3. Locate the following registry key:
  4. Verify if the value of the String (Default) is "htmlfile". If it's not "htmlfile", right-click (Default), click Modify, input htmlfile in the Value data box, and then click OK.

Error installing outlook client: Cannot delete a subkey tree because the subkey does not exist

Link to post
"Could not remove registry subkey HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSCRMClient\AllowList. Cannot delete a subkey tree because the subkey does not exist."

I come across this error during the installation of Outlook client MSCRM 4.0
If you faced the same problem as me, most probably is you have install outlook client beta 2010 before.

Make sure the Beta 2010 outlook client was uninstalled,
uninstall version 4 outlook client; if any
Manually delete the folder Program Files\MSCRM
Reinstall the CRM 4 outlook client again.

This time it should work like charm :)

No organization was specified in the configuration file

Link to post
Recently, one of the client reported that the outlook client configuration wizard prompt them this error message during the CRM 4 outlook client setup.
It seems like too general for system admin to figure out the issue behind.
Besically it is caused by the particular user was not add to CRM system, thats why setup wizard can't populate the related organization and its data.
Just add the user to CRM system and grant him related privilege, case close :)
I was thinking of showing access denied is more easy for us to find out the root cause, what do you think...?

Error during installation of CRM Outlook Client for Office 2010

Link to post
Just to share out, if you tried to install CRM4 outlook client for MS Outlook2010, the setup will failed because of office version validation.
To solve this, we need to modify something in regedit.

HKEY Current User\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSCRMClient

Create DWord (32 bit) value

Modify the recurring system jobs' interval in CRM 4

Link to post
Default CRM4.0 come with 3 system jobs, "Update Contract States","Organization Full text Catalog index", and "SQM Data Collection". If you have duplicate detection rules published, then you will have more than 3 jobs.[Matchcode Update]

Default jobs run every 5 minutes, each time it run will create a record under the AsyncOperationBase table. This definately will make the tbale grow very fast if you have many duplicate detection rules. Simple math will be 12 records per minutes; 720 records per hour; 17280 records per day.

Of course there is service to help you remove old records, but for me the Matchcode Update seems no need to run so frequently if most of the time is use for browsing. For me update hourly or every 30 minutes is fair enough.

Example: run this query in MSCRM DB
<br /> SELECT name,RecurrencePattern FROM dbo.AsyncOperationBase<br /> WHERE RecurrencePattern is not null and name='Accounts' <br /> 

name is the duplicate detection job related entity.

You will see something like "FREQ=MINUTELY;INTERVAL=5;"
In this case i change to 7 minutes by using SQL update statement,
then restart service.

Reference for all valid values.

*Information I post below is an unsupported customization, this might void your CRM warranty. Personnaly I have tried this in both my CRM development environment and is working like charm!

CRM 4.0 Update Rollup 10

Link to post
Latest CRM 4.0 rollup 10 released on 8/April/2010.
Rollup 10 can be uninstall on server
Rollup 10 is cumulative.
Rollup 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 are not prerequisites for server portion.
Update Rollup 7 is a prerequisite for Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Microsoft Office Outlook and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Data Migration Manager.

Special Considerations:

  1. 64-bit versions of Office 2010 will not be supported in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0.
  2. With Update Rollup 8 installed, Microsoft CRM E-mail Router Service supports Microsoft Exchange 2010. However, because of an issue with MAPI, the Rule Deployment Wizard does not support Microsoft Exchange 2010. This issue will be addressed in a future update of Microsoft Exchange 2010.

Windows Azure

Link to post

The Azure Services Platform uses a specialized operating system, called Windows Azure, to run its "fabric layer" — a cluster hosted at Microsoft's datacenters that manages computing and storage resources of the computers and provisions the resources (or a subset of them) to applications running on top of Windows Azure. Windows Azure has been described as a "cloud layer" on top of a number of Windows Server systems, which use Windows Server 2008 and a customized version of Hyper-V, known as the Windows Azure Hypervisor to provide virtualization of services.

The platform includes five services Live Services, SQL Services (which is now Microsoft SQL Azure), .NET Services, SharePoint Services and Dynamics CRM Services which the developers can use to build the applications that will run in the cloud. A client library, in managed code, and associated tools are also provided for developing cloud applications in Visual Studio. Scaling and reliability are controlled by the Windows Azure Fabric Controller so the services and environment don't crash if one of the servers crash within the Microsoft datacenter and provides the management of the user's web application like memory resources and load balancing.

The Azure Services Platform can currently run .NET Framework applications compiled for the CLR, while supporting the ASP.NET application framework and associated deployment methods to deploy the applications onto the cloud platform. Two SDKs have been made available for interoperability with the Azure Services Platform: The Java SDK for .NET Services and the Ruby SDK for .NET Services. These enable Java and Ruby developers to integrate with .NET Services.

CRM 4 - Small changes:big effect

Link to post
1) Multi-Columns sorting

All CRM view actually support multi-columns sorting, the key point is user must press [shift] and click the second column, seems not much users notice this usefull feature.

2) Manipulate CRM Privileges

If you found that your entity privileges in security role page just consist of "None Selected" (empty red circle) or "Organization" (filled green circle). Please double check your entity information ownership is it set correctly.
-for organization owned entities - only Organization and none security levels allowed
-for user owned entities - none, user, business unit, parent child business unit and organization level allowed.

Sql query for better understanding...
SELECT OwnershipTypeMask as mask,*
FROM MetadataSchema.Entity
WHERE OwnershipTypeMask=8
ORDER BY OwnershipTypeMask

Failed to upload report on CRM 4

Link to post
If you hit weird error on CRM while you try to upload a report, you might need to read this.
It seems some of the DLL in CRM application server failed to read/write.
I get this in the SQL error logs

ERROR: Throwing Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportProcessing.ReportProcessingException: An unexpected error occurred in Report Processing., ; Info: Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportProcessing.ReportProcessingException: An unexpected error occurred in Report Processing. ---> System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.ReportingServices.ProcessingObjectModel, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91' or one of its dependencies.

You also can see this in CRM FE event viewer:

rsExecutionNotFound on CRM4's Reporting Server

Link to post
Large CRM implentation normally design the SQL reporting services to run in an individual separate server to avoid the server overload. I faced an issue that wasted me 2 man-days to solved it.

Solution is very easy; I posted it out my experience, hope that can help you guys on similar issues.

I migrate my reporting services to new server, all seems to be very easy in CRM 4, just need to use the deployment management tools in CRM apllication server there, disable organization, change SRS URL only.

But the problem is after doing so, I cant render my reports at all. Spend almost 1 day to troubleshoot. I got the errors:

Crm Exception: Message: Execution '154xnnr3o5vqef55cimag0jc' cannot be found (rsExecutionNotFound), ErrorCode: -2147220332, InnerException: Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportServerException: Execution '154xnnr3o5vqef55cimag0jc' cannot be found (rsExecutionNotFound)at Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ServerReport.SetParameters(IEnumerable`1 parameters)at Microsoft.Crm.Web.Reporting.SrsReportViewer.ConfigurePage()

Additional, from the SQL log, I can see this:

w3wp!session!b!02/25/2009-00:48:45:: i INFO: LoadSnapshot: Item with session: znix5areosn3gmvnwkwr2x45, reportPath: , userName: domain\machine-name$ not found in the databasew3wp!library!b!02/25/2009-00:48:45:: e ERROR: Throwing Microsoft.ReportingServices.Diagnostics.Utilities.ExecutionNotFoundException: Execution 'znix5areosn3gmvnwkwr2x45' cannot be found, ; Info: Microsoft.ReportingServices.Diagnostics.Utilities.ExecutionNotFoundException: Execution 'znix5areosn3gmvnwkwr2x45' cannot be found

Problem is the error showing seems not much useful and describe the root cause after you know the root cause.
To solve this issue, for my case, just make sure all your FE server, reporting server.. configure to use the same datetime region.
What I can think off after this was the LoadSnapshot with session always deal with the session expired issue, because of the time region different, when you execute the report from front end, it found different time and your session expired!

CRM 4: Insufficient Permissions

Link to post
I faced a weird issue where some of the users with same role privilege in CRM Titan can not log on to CRM web. After doing some research and study the CRM trace log text file, the workaround is to grant at least an user level on Write User Setting in the specific role.
(at least a value 1 in PrivilegeDepthMask column in RolePrivileges Table)

You can find on the security setting page>roles>Business Management Tab.

Service Unavailable when browsing CRM

Link to post
After doing some configuration on CRM 4 server, i hit the "Service Unavailable" error when browsing CRM default homepage.

I am using CRM 64 bits version in windows 2003 with IIS6.
Problem cause by the IIS is not pointing to .NET framework v2.0 64bits anymore, since it is 32bits/64bits compatible. I suspect it default back to 32bits version.

Solution: What I did was open Command Prompt browse to [C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727>] then do an "aspnet_regiis.exe -i" to register it back.

Work like charm for me.
Hope this help others who facing the same problem.
