Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 SDK

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 SDK

  • Comments 9

The Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Software Development Kit (SDK) is now ready for download on MSDN. The SDK is for developers, system customizers, and report writers.

It contains all new information about creating plug-ins, working with custom workflow activities, using the new Web services, using new data management features, and much more. It also contains information for developers writing server side code, custom business logic, integration modules, workflow assemblies, and more. It provides an architectural overview of Microsoft Dynamics CRM, the entity model, security model, and Web services. Sample code and walkthroughs guide you through the new features.

The SDK also contains information for developers customizing the Web client or Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Microsoft Office Outlook, including scripting, integration of custom Web pages, sample code, and a detailed user interface style guide.

This release contains lots of new sample code, walkthroughs and general information about the new features. It will be updated once a month for the next 3-4 months while we fill in some of the cracks and then on a quarterly basis.

Feedback is welcome!

  • PingBack from http://geeklectures.info/2008/01/07/microsoft-dynamics-crm-40-sdk/

  • Downloaded, and have observed some problems. Where should feedback be provided?

    Example: The readme.doc file for the sdk\projecttemplates\visualstudiotemplates\cs refers to Visual Studio 2005 installation for the templates.

    The Visual Studio 2008 installation procedure appears to be simply COPY the .zip file into the ...\Visual Studio 2008\Templates\Project Templates\Visual C# directory.

    But, if you try and use the template, you get and error 'this template attempted to load an untrusted component 'Microsoft.Crm.Sdk.Tools.TemplateWizard, Version=1.0.0.0, ......'

  • Visual Studio 2008 installation of the crmworkflow.zip file (instructions in the readme) should direct you to copy the file to the '...\Visual Studio 2008\Templates\Project Templates\Visual C#' directory, not unzip the files to a CRM folder.

    If I do this, however, I get an error trying to use the template about a 'Error: this template attempted to load an untrusted component Microsoft.Crm.Sdk.Tools.TemplateWizard, Version=1.0.0.0 ...'

  • Interesting: blogs.msdn.com

  • I will look into this issue and respond. I suspect that you need to follow the readme in SDK\Tools\WorkflowConfigurationTool first.

    In general you should post SDK doc issues to the newsgroup located at  http://www.microsoft.com/Businesssolutions/Community/Newsgroups/dgbrowser/en-us/default.mspx?dg=microsoft.public.crm&lang=en&cr=US

  • Does Biztalk adapter for CRM 3.0 work with CRM 4.0?

  • I downloaded the current SDK: CrmSdk4.02.exe and extract it, but there is no  "SDK\Tools\WorkflowConfigurationTool" Directory, just 2 Plugin Tools.

    Are the Visual Studio Template is still available? And is there any benefit compared with the normal WWF Template?
