All versions of Connector for Microsoft Dynamics since version 2.1, which was released 6/29/2012, are compatible with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013.
When creating an integration to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 you will need to enter settings for the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 adapter. This adapter will connect to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 as well as Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011.

I just downloaded and installed the last version of the Dynamics Connector for AX. I use the CRM 2011 adapter as you describe above but during the adapter configuration wizard in the step "Setting product decimal decision", I get the following error:
"The attribute of type:Image introduced in version 18.104.22.168 is not available for this client version"
I tried replacing the Microsoft.CRM.SDK.Proxy.dll from the CRM 2013 SDK bin folder to the installation folder of the connector app but this led to a different error.
Can you help on how this error can be avoided?
Thanks in advance,
Followin my previous post, I solved the issue by replacing the Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.dll file from the CRM SDK 2012 bin folder to the following folder:
<Your Drive>\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics\Microsoft Dynamics Adapter\Adapters\Microsoft.Dynamics.Integration.Adapters.Crm2011
This seems to have gotten past this error message - not sure if further issues will be encounter later in the configuration.
@Mirko - sorry to not have gotten back to you on this sooner. You are correct that the latest Xrm.sdk.dll is needed when integrating with CRM 2013. Version 3.1 of Connector does include this update.
I downloaded the connector files just yesterday so I should have had the latest update, right?
I also encountered another issue in the Projects Integration Solution which I downloaded from Partnersource. When I tried to run "ConnectorMapInstallerForSI.exe", as instructed my Microsoft documentation, the exe fails to load. When I chose to debug it in VS I got the following exception:
“Unhandled exception: System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly ‘ConnectorMapInstallerForSI, version=, culture=neutral, publickeytoken= 'or one of its dependencies. Strong name validation failed.<Exception from HRESULT: 0x8013141A>”
Obviously I could not view the source code of the exe. To resolve the above issue I open the VS developer command prompt (luckily I had VS installed :)) and ran the following command:
sn -Vr * (Note: the V should be capitalised or else this won't work)
After that the .exe loaded correctly.
I hope this helps people out there who encounter these problems.
@Mirko - yes you have the latest Connector files if you downloaded them yesterday.
I am encountering further issues with the "ConnectorMapInstallerForSI.exe". Are you familiar with the "Integration Solution for Microsoft Dynamics AX projects and Microsoft Dynamics CRM"?
It fails with the following error:
Function Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.ProjectCRMIntegration.Mapping.SIHelper, Microsoft.Dynamics.AX.ProjectCRMIntegration.Mapping, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35:CRMIntegrationStatusToAX(String CRMStatus, String QuotationStatus, Int32 StatusReasonValue) does not exist in the system.
I used ildasm to check the dll accompanying the exe I mention above and indeed that method exists in the dll so not sure why this exception is thrown.
If you are not the right person, who should I contact with help about this?
@Mirko - thanks for trying the Project CRM Integration solution. Could you give more details on where exactly you see the failure? Have you modified the maps further - if so, you may need to adapt the solution further as well.
I only followed the steps described in the document called "InstallguideIntegrationSolAXprojectsCRM.pdf" I did not do anything more than that. I did not modify any mappings.
I recorded my action which leads to the error fails in the video in the link below.
OS is Windows Server 2012. The Connector is installed on the same machine.
If you need more information let me know.
Can you help me further here or shall I open a support ticket with Microsoft?
To use the Connector with CRM 2013 updated forms (Account, Contact) you need to include the fields dynamics_isreadyforintegration and dynamics_integrationkey somewhere on the form. That enables you to use the submit button and workflows to send Records over to the AX.
