Microsoft CRM 2011 Outlook Add-on on Terminal Server causes Outlook to slow down. When clicking say New Email it takes 7 seconds to open.

It's a virtual TS running on W2k8 R2 with 7GB of RAM, just for 4 users for now.

How to fix it?

Any errors in the event log? Whats the cpu doing during that 7 seconds? Pegging? What have you done to troubleshoot?

Good luck

no CPU is OK, no major event in Event Log, have disabled the add-on in Ooutlook or uninstall completely and everything is back to normal

piotrmikula108--How do you know this Add-In is the cause of the slow down?  Have you tried disabling it?

piotrmikula108--I now see you reported "everything is back to normal" three days ago.  You should have closed this thread then rather than have requested more help from Experts.

piotrmikula108--You do not have to uninstall MS Dynamiscs CRM 2011--just disable the Add-in.  
If you do not like the result of that, please tell us what is not working the way you want.
Yes, it is known that CRM 2011 has conflicts with Outlook

Do you have the latest CRM updates?
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949256

Is this something which just started?  In other words you have been using CRM 2011 for some time with no problems with Outlook email and all of a sudden the problem has arisen?
If so, consider a System Restore.

I know that, I just tried both and then reinstalling
the issue started from the beginning of the installation, please remember I'm trying to run on a 64bit Terminal Server, not a desktop

piotrmikula108 . . . doesn't sound like anyone is really offering help. So CPU / memory use is not high when the add on is enabled, is that correct? And there are no errors in the event log? Have you traced a connection to see what is actually happening on the wire?

That may be the next thing you'll have to do . . .

Good luck,
SteveJ

yes, CPU/memory is not maxing out and no major errors in event log. I have not traced the connection yet, what would be the best way to do that?
