Dynamics CRM 4.0 client for Outlook 2010

Good day,

I'm experiancing a problem while installing the Dynamice CRM 4.0 client for Microsoft Outlook on a fresh installed HP Workstation Z400 with Windows 7 Pro and Office 2010.

At first I thought it was a problem with the original installation dvd, because Office 2010 was not available two years ago. So I searched MS Download Center and I found a client with Update Roll-Up 10 integrated. The error I receive with the original client is that Microsoft Outlook cannot be detected.


The error I receive with the newer (Roll-Up 10) client is: Installation can not continue because an operation to restart in treatment is required. Restart the computer and try again. (this is a Google translation. The Dutch error is: Kan niet doorgaan met installatie: De installatie kan niet worden voortgezet omdat een bewerking voor opnieuw opstarten in behandeling is vereist. Start de computer opnieuw op en probeer de installatie opnieuw uit te voeren).

I looked for pending file name operations key in the registry. There ain't.

Any ideas?

You could try looking in the crm setup log file in %appdata%\Microsoft\MSCRM\Logs to see if there the problem registry key is listed. If this does identify the key then you can delete the appropriate key.

OR you can create a registry key to tell Outlook to ignore these checks as per this article: http://community.dynamics.com/product/crm/crmtechnical/b/crmpowerobjects/archive/2009/11/24/outlook-crm-client-installation-8211-constant-pending-reboot.aspx

Hi Björn,

Could you try restarting your PC and then try to install again. I think some pending installation is giving you this issue, if you reboot it should fix it.

I found a working solution for this problem.
Create a entry in the registry

HKEY Current User\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSCRMClient
Create DWord (32 bit) value
Title: IgnoreChecks
Value: 1

Setup can now be continued successfully.

I advised of the solution in the comment prior to BGMServices's comment. Perhaps a partial credit should be given.

Hi All,

In response of : http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/General/Q_27297297.html?cid=1576
I agree with Feridun maybe the question can be closed as partial however as there is a proper answer posted and Feridun was the one who posted it first[almost 13 hours gap], I'd recommend that he
shud be given full points OR author can split the points between himself and Feridun. I don't think that this question should be closed with 0 points.
