I am having an issue with my main PC that impacts my ability to use the CRM Client for Outlook as well as create Fetch-based reports using Visual Studio 2008 with the report authoring extensions.
CRM for Outlook stopped working and at the same time I had an issue connecting to CRM from the reporting tool. I uninstalled the Outlook client, the reporting extensions, and the Microsoft Online Services Sign-in Assistant. I then reinstalled the Outlook client and the extensions and still have the issue.
When I create a dataset that uses a CRM data source, I get the following error:
Could not load type 'Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.Client.
ation' from assembly 'Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad3
An authentication error occurred while connecting to server "https://hero.crm.dynamics.com/XRMServices/2011/Discovery.svc
". Make sure that the connection string and credentials are correct, and try again.
Creating the same data source and dataset on another machine with the same instance of CRM online works just fine.
If I try to configure the CRM client for Outlook, I get a very similar error:
I've looked at the Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.dll assembly in the folder for the report authoring tool and the version is identical between both machines and am at a loss for what the difference is here...
