Updated: December 9, 2016

Applies To: Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016

From a command prompt, you can use the following command to install Microsoft Dynamics CRM Report Authoring Extension:

SetupBIDSExtensions.exe [/Q] [/config configfile.xml]


Quiet mode installation. This parameter requires an XML configuration file. The /config parameter contains the name of the configuration file. No dialog boxes or error messages will appear on the display screen.

/config [drive:] [[path] configfilename.xml]]

The /config parameter uses the specified XML configuration file to provide Setup with the additional information to complete the installation. An example XML configuration file is shown in Microsoft Dynamics CRM Report Authoring Extension XML configuration file. Notice that if you specify a configuration file without the /Q parameter, you’ll see Setup screens displayed with the information from the configuration file.


Uninstalls Microsoft Dynamics 365 Reporting Extensions. This is a maintenance mode option that is only available after the application is installed.
