New prerequisites for Update Rollup 11
Update Rollup 11 has two new prerequisites. They are the Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable (AKA VC9 Redist SP1) and .Net 3.5 SP1. The prerequisites were required to support Report Viewer 2008 SP1 and other engineering improvements made in Update Rollup 11.
If Visual C++ 2008 SP1 is not installed, the Update Rollup 11 installer will download and install it during execution.
If .Net 3.5 SP1 is not installed, the Update Rollup 11 installer will display a message telling the user that the required prerequisites are not installed and exit without making changes.
Information about the Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=A5C84275-3B97-4AB7-A40D-3802B2AF5FC2&displaylang=en.

Outlook 2010 Ribbon Enhancements
Update Rollup 11 includes native support for the Outlook 2010 ribbon. After Update Rollup 11 is installed, the CRM buttons will appear as part of the Outlook 2010 Home tab.
Microsoft Report Viewer 2008 Support
Update Rollup 11 adds support for Report Viewer 2008 SP1. During the installation of Update Rollup 11, the web.config file will be updated with the necessary changes needed for this support. Note: While the installer will take care of the necessary changes on install, there is a deviation from expected behavior if Update Rollup 11 is uninstalled. The web.config file will be reverted to the last installed version removing any custom entries made to that file.
