Here are some Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Online Outlook Client installation errors that I had encountered so far and how to resolve them.

  • Receive the following messages during configuration:
    There is a problem communicating with the Microsoft Dynamics CRM server

Resolution: Un-install the CRM Outlook Client, Windows Live Essential and Windows Live ID Sign In Assistant.  Then Re-install.  If you want to keep Windows Live Essential intact you can try to repair it first.

    Nice post. We have run into several snags with the Outlook Client. Hoping it is really fixed and performs with the speed it should. Knowing Microsoft, the Outlook integration will be fast and slick – exactly what Salesforce is fearing.

  2. Thanks Cliff. Microsoft CRM 2011 is really a well rounded CRM system. The amazing thing is that it works well for the smallest businesses to the largest. Microsoft CRM Outlook Client is a no brainer for any organizations that are standarized on Microsoft Office/Outlook.
