When published, the Update Rollup 2 packages will be available via: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=81674da5-ffef-492a-a7b1-7e1f1951b05f

This update rollup includes packages for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server and Microsoft Dynamics CRM client for Outlook 3.0 to maintain parity between the client and server components of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0.

Questions & Answers

Question: Does Update Rollup 2 contain all fixes that were included in Update Rollup 1 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0?

Answer: Yes, absolutely. Microsoft Knowledge Base article 927751 will list all fixes “new to Update Rollup 2”, and will provide a reference to Microsoft Knowledge Base article 922815, which lists all fixes shipped via Update Rollup 1.

Question: Can Update Rollup 2 be uninstalled?

Answer: No, it can’t. Please note that Update Rollup 2 cannot be uninstalled, and that you should back up your OrganizationName_MSCRM and OrganizationName_Metabase databases prior to installation of Update Rollup 2.

Question: Is there anything special about Update Rollup 2 regarding hotfixes released after Update Rollup 2?

Answer: Yes, there is. Update Rollup 2 is a prerequisite for future Microsoft Dynamics CRM hotfixes. It establishes a new baseline, so your clients and servers must have Update Rollup 2 installed prior to installation of post-Update Rollup 2 hotfixes. Post-Update Rollup 2 hotfixes will be uninstallable.

Question: What about “Daylight Saving Time?”

Answer: Update Rollup 2 contains the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Daylight Saving Time tools described in Microsoft Knowledge Base articles 925874: An update for the 2007 daylight saving time changes is available for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 and for the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 client for Outlook and 932984: How to make the 2007 daylight saving time changes by using the Update Time Zones Wizard for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0.

If you are unfamiliar with the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Daylight Saving Time tools, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the above-mentioned Microsoft Knowledge Base articles. And if you haven't already run the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Update Time Zones Wizard, we encourage you to do so to make sure that Microsoft Dynamics CRM entities with date/time stamps that fall in the period when daylight saving time is ending have their times adjusted appropriately.

Question: Are there any Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Online Help Updates available?

Answer: Absolutely yes, and we encourage you to update your help files! Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Online Help Updates for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server and Microsoft Dynamics CRM client for Outlook 3.0, including the Service Provider Edition, are also available for download. Please refer to the Microsoft CRM 3.0 Online Help Update.

Question: Does Microsoft Dynamics CRM Update Rollup 2 provide Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Sales for Outlook compatibility with Windows Vista and Office 2007?

Answer: No, it doesn’t. For Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 client for Outlook compatibility with Office 2007 and Windows Vista, refer to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 client for Microsoft Office Outlook Compatibility Updates for the On premise and Service Provider Edition versions of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0. Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Update Rollup client packages do include fixes for the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 clients for Microsoft Office Outlook Compatibility Update, but only if the Compatibility Client is already installed.

Question: What about availability of Update Rollups for Chinese (Simplified) and Japanese versions of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0?

Answer: We plan on distributing a beta version of Update Rollup 1 for Chinese and Japanese versions of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 approximately June 29th, 2007 to external pre-release testers. The estimated public release date is August 1st, 2007. This rollup will contain the most impactful fixes provided by Update Rollups 1 and 2 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 On premise version. If you are interested in participating in the pre-release testing program, please send requests or nominations to crmsepm@microsoft.com.

Question: What about availability of Update Rollups for the Service Provider Edition of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0?

Answer: We plan on distributing a beta version of Update Rollup 1 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Service Provider Edition approximately July 23rd, 2007 to external pre-release testers. The estimated public release date is September 1st, 2007. This rollup will contain the most impactful fixes provided by Update Rollups 1 and 2 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 On premise version. If you are interested in participating in the pre-release testing program, please send requests or nominations to crmsepm@microsoft.com.

Question: Is there anything special I need to know about export and import of customizations?

Answer: Yes, there is. When customizations were exported from a Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 server running a Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Update Rollup, importing the customizations to a Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 server that does not have the same version of the Update Rollup installed is not supported. Such an attempt will produce an error message such as “The selected schema file does not conform with the requested format. There has been an error with the schema validation in line 37977, position 16.” When attempting to import customizations to your Microsoft Dynamics CRM server that were exported from a Microsoft Dynamics CRM server running an Update Rollup 2, make sure the Microsoft Dynamics CRM server to which you are importing the customizations also has the same Update Rollup installed.

Question: What about Hotfixes and updates that you have to manually enable or configure?

Answer: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Update Rollups generally contain hotfixes and updates that you have to manually enable or configure. To enable or configure these hotfixes on the server that is running Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0, see the "Hotfixes and updates that you have to manually enable or configure" section of the Microsoft Knowledge Base article associated with the Update Rollup in question.

  • So for a fresh client install, the install order is V3C and then Rollup 2?

  • Great news!!

    I'd like to check just one thing: the KB article 927751 mentions a issue regarding registration of Microsoft.Crm.MetadataService.dll to the GAC. Could this be the same for CrmService.dll?

    Thanks for your explanation, Greg.

  • OK - so Rollup 2 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 is officially out! I know I'm a bit behind in blogging

  • We have installed Dynamics CRM 3.0 two months ago. Now, we are upgrading from 20 users to 30 users. We purchased through our partner, but they provide another CD, with a new Key. Do I just put the new CD in the server and install? I am afraid the new CD would overwrite the previous 20 users. Please help.

    Thank you,

    Elizabeth

    Does each user with with an outlook profile need to run the rollup or is logging in a adminstrator and running the rollup sufficient?
