On Sep 22nd 2014 Microsoft released Update Rollup 1 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 Service Pack 1 and back in July Update Rollup 3 was released.  So we now have:
 

  • Update Rollup 1
  • Update Rollup 2
  • Update Rollup 3
  • Service Pack 1
  • Update Rollup 1 for Service Pack 1

Confused? You and many others.
 

Updates for the original RTM release of CRM 2013



As of the 2013 version Microsoft stated that Update Rollups would not add new features as occured with CRM 2011. So as usual update rollups that fix bugs were released for the original RTM (release to manufacturing) that happens to be version 6.0. 0. So far we have Update Rollup 1, Update Rollup 2 and Update Rollup 3. Installing an update rollup changes the version number to 6.0.1, 6.0.2 or 6.0.3. Note that the third number matches the Update Rollup number. There is also a fourth number known as the build number but that isn't relevant to this discussion.
 

So what is Service Pack 1 then?

 

In the CRM roadmap, Microsoft promised lots of new features around Service Entitlement (and other areas) for CRM Online during the summer of 2014 and for on-premise at the end of 2014. In a surprise move, the new features were made available to on-premise customers ahead of time in the so-called "Leo" release. This is what you get when you install Service Pack 1. This changes the version number to 6.1.0.
 

So this gives two branches of the…

This is a walkthrough guide I wrote whilst upgrading my on-premise MS Dynamics CRM 3.0 deployment to 4.0. This covers the actual installation of the product to a working level for my system, I ran into a lot of issues that the steps below fixed so hopefully this will help others.

Note that CRM and SQL were installed on the same server.

Preperation for upgrade:
1. Have both 3.0 and 4.0 Licence keys to hand
2. Run Rule Deployment wizard on Exchange Server to remove rules from users mailboxes
3. Back up the org_METABASE db and the org_MSCRM db
4. Export the Workflows
5. Export the Customisations
6. Purge the Workflow databases using the following queries:

Query 1
update wfprocessinstance
set deletionstatecode = 2
where statecode in (3,4)

Query 2
delete wfactionlog
where processinstanceid in
(select processinstanceid from wfprocessinstance where deletionstatecode = 2)

Query 3
delete wfrulelog
where processinstanceid in
(select processinstanceid from wfprocessinstance where deletionstatecode = 2)

Query 4
delete wfprocessinstance
where deletionstatecode = 2

7. Remove the Data Migration & Redeployment programs
8. Register the Microsoft.Crm.Platform.Callout.Base.dll in the GAC (see figure1)
 8. Register the Microsoft.Crm.Platform.Callout.Base.dll in the GAC9. Make sure the permissions for the folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft CRM\server\bin\assembly are set to FULL for EVERYONE and NETWORK SERVICE
10. Do an iisreset then restart the Server – check that CRM 3.0 is working …
