WIF Error – Scribe CRM Adapter installation

Today I’d encountered the “Microsoft Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) is required…” error message while trying to install the latest Scribe Adapter for Microsoft Dynamics CRM v5.5 which supports connecting to Microsoft CRM 4.0, 2011, and 2013 plus CRM Online.


I’d checked the Windows Server 2012 and it has the Microsoft Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) feature already installed – so this error message is not too useful.  Searching the Scribe Forum yields this thread which gave me a clue to a quick work-around:

Open a command prompt in Administrator mode and then run the Scribe Adapter for Microsoft Dynamics CRM msi file.
