Last week, Microsoft released
Information about Rollup 11
Update Rollup 11 is cumulative. However, the Update Rollup 11 CRM Client and Data Migration Client packages require Update Rollup 7 to be installed. For all other CRM components you do not need to install any previous Update Rollups prior to Update Rollup 11
The Update Rollup 11 download contains updates for the 40 supported Language Packs. Prior to installing the Update Rollup 11 Language pack you must install the original Language pack.
If you have Language Packs installed, you should:
- Download the Update Rollup 11 Language Pack
- Install the Update Rollup 11 Language Pack
- De-provision the Language Pack
- Re-provision the Language Pack
Update Rollup 11 has two new prerequisites; Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable (AKA VC9 Redist SP1) and .Net 3.5 SP1. If Visual C++ 2008 SP1 is not installed, the Update Rollup 11 installer will download and install it during execution. If .Net 3.5 SP1 is not installed, the Update Rollup 11 installer will display a message telling the user that the required prerequisites are not installed and exit without making changes.
Microsoft Report Viewer 2008 Support
Update Rollup 11 adds support for Report Viewer 2008 SP1. During the installation of Update Rollup 11, the web.config file will be updated with the necessary changes needed for this support. Note: While the installer will take care of the necessary changes on install, there is a deviation from expected behavior if Update Rollup 11 is uninstalled. The web.config file will be reverted to the last installed version removing any custom entries made to that file.
Outlook 2010 Ribbon Enhancements
Update Rollup 11 includes native support for the Outlook 2010 ribbon. After Update Rollup 11 is installed, the CRM buttons will appear as part of the Outlook 2010 Home tab.
