January 28, 2011 Leave a comment

If you get a message that the import wizard cannot find a database in CRM2011. It means tghat either you have not restored the database correctly or there are no more organization databases to import.

Once you’ve restored a new database correctly on the SQL server the message will disappear and let you move forward.

CRM Plugins were not able to call the CRM Services when localhost

January 23, 2011 1 comment

I am getting ready to create quite a few plugins (synchronous .Net code execution) for CRM 4.0. While testing an account creation plugin, I noticed that the line were I create an instance of ICrmService from the plugin context would fail and therefore was unable to execute correctly.

I was getting strange message “Unable to call remote server”.

I found out that since we’re using a hostname, we need to modify the registry settings for LocalSdkHost and LocalSdkPort values in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSCRM:


The following knowledge base article gave me the clue:  Synchronous plug-ins do not respond to the events that are triggered in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0

Hope this helps! Because plugins are so much more powerfull than workflows!
