Microsoft Dynamics CRM Report Authoring Extension installation Instructions

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013

If not already installed, the following components are installed during Microsoft Dynamics CRM Report Authoring Extension Setup:

  • Microsoft Application Error Reporting Tool

  • Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant 6.5

ImportantImportant
If your organization uses Microsoft Office 365, the computer on which the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Report Authoring Extension is installed must have the Microsoft Online Services Sign-in Assistant installed on it. If Microsoft Online Services Sign-in Assistant is already installed, check the registry key SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSOIdentityCRL and make sure that the TargetDir registry key in MSOIdentityCRL contains msoidcli.dll.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM Report Authoring Extension is a plug-in that obtains the metadata and data from Microsoft Dynamics CRM. This metadata is required to design and preview Fetch-based reports in Business Intelligence Development Studio.

  1. In the /BIDSExtensions/ folder, double-click SetupBIDSExtensions.exe.

  2. On the Welcome to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Report Authoring Extension Setup page, we recommend that you click Get updates for Microsoft Dynamics CRM, to make sure that Setup has the most recent installation files. Click Next.

  3. On the License Agreement page, review the information, and if you accept the license agreement, select the I accept this license agreement check box, and then click I Accept.

  4. If Setup detects that some required components are missing, the Install Required Components page appears. To install them, click Install. When the components are installed, the status column changes from Not Installed to Installed. Click Next to continue.

    noteNote
    • These components are required before Microsoft Dynamics CRM Report Authoring Extension can be installed. You can exit Setup and install the components manually, or select Install. The Next button on this page is disabled until Setup detects that these components are installed.
