what pre-requisites I need to have in order to install applications.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I can't speak for Biz Talk but for Microsoft Dynamics CRM (if that is what you are using), SQL Server must be installed first. It does not have to be on the same server as CRM but can be.

The requirements for CRM depend on which version you are using. (2011, 2013 or 2015). Consult the Crm Implementation guide for the relevant version to get the full list of hardware and software requirements.
