I have successfully installed MS Dynamics CRM 4.0 on a Windows 2003 server.

I have install update rollup 1-6

When I attempt to install the local client on my machine using Outlook 2007, I enter the "Intranet address" of the server reports.


Everytime I try to install, I get the error:

Client Found Response content type of ", but expected 'text/xml'. the request failed with an empty response.

Now, I have the server up correctly and I've checked the link to make sure it works, i can even access the same link with my browser, but no dice.

Any input would be extremely appreciated -

    For the CRM client you need to enter the URL of the CRM web site not the report server.

    If you accepted the defaults during installation it is most likely http://yourservername:5555

    You could double-checking by looking in IIS Manager on the server and looking at the Web Site properties for the CRM web site.
