When trying to install the Integration Solution for Dynamics AX projects and Microsoft Dynamics CRM, I cannot generate the mapping for the new entities (mbs.microsoft.com/.../MSDCRMAXIntegrationSol). I followed the installation guide, however it seems that the exe file is corrupted.
When getting to the stage of installing the mappings for the new services (Step 5 Page 18 of the installation guide), I cannot access the exe file.
Has anyone reported this issue?

Thanks for your response.
Regarding the Order to Sales Order Service from CRM to AX 2012 R2 CU7, when submitting the order from CRM 2013 the Sales Order Type is defaulted to "Journal" instead of "Sales Order". I checked my settings under AR Parameters for default Sales Order type and its set to "Sales Order". Furthermore, the Sales Type mapping between CRM to AX is set to "Sales" as per SalesType enum value in the AOT.
I tried different options such as Sales Order, Sales, number 3 which is the SalesType EnumValue for Sales or Sales Order. However, no luck.
Thanks for your response.
Regarding the Integration Solution for Dynamics AX projects and Microsoft Dynamics CRM:
I managed to find a blog post that assist with this issue by debugging the exe file (blogs.msdn.com/.../microsoft-dynamics-crm-2013-is-supported-by-connector-for-microsoft-dynamics.aspx) see the comments section by Mirko.
However, still facing issues with installing the maps. After using VS to debug the exe and go through the steps performed by Mikro, I get a message saying Maps installed successfully as per configuration documentation provided. Though when starting the service and the connector, I could not find the services on the connector GUI.
I am running AX 2012 R2 CU7, CRM 2013 and latest Connector Version.
