Connector for Microsoft Dynamics V3 CU 4

Sivakumar Venkataraman - Click for blog homepageThe Connector for Microsoft Dynamics v3 Cumulative Update 4 was released earlier this month. This was an important release which provided the support for integrations into Dynamics CRM 2015. However, it no longer supports Dynamics CRM 2011 or Dynamics CRM 4.0

Some of the interesting features of this release have been listed below.

  • Support for CRM 2015, which requires the updated CRM solutions included in this release (1.0.1603.5) – these CRM solutions include "CRM2015" in their file names
  • These solutions also provide support for both the summary and information forms for the targeted entities within CRM 2015
  • New mappings for Microsoft Dynamics AX and CRM Contact integration that handle the new address 3 fields included in CRM 2015 contacts properly.  Those changes can be found in the map changes section.
  • The required Microsoft .NET Framework versions (3.5 and 4.5.2) are checked for during installation.  The Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.5.2 can be downloaded here: web installer or offline installer.
  • The new integration template for creating and integration between Microsoft Dynamics GP and CRM using CRM contacts has been removed
  • All previous updates for CU 3 have been incorporated into this release

To download this release for your Microsoft Dynamics ERP system, go to Customer Source:
