CRM 4.0 Plug-in WARNING

Hi all,

After a very frustrating attempt at getting a plug-in to work properly I found out a rather embarrassing bug.

This is of course assuming that your that your plug-ins have been developed properly and that it has been registered using the plug-in registration tool version 2.0 (for those who are using the one delivered with the sdk.)

If the organization name has a space in it your plug-in will fail to load.

To rename any organization:

  1. Open the deployment manager
  2. Disable the organisation
  3. Remove any spaces in the display name
  4. Re-enable the organization
  5. Proceed to relax and enjoy the superb flexibility that is provided by Plug-ins (Thank You Microsoft).


I hope this has helped.

Thank You

Have a great day.

How to send PDF attachments in a fax activity

CRM 3.0 does not support sending a fax with PDF attachment by default.
If you want to enable this feature go to the server's registry editor.

Edit the Key FaxAllowedAttachments and add .pdf

When I tested, it worked fine, even with complex PDFs.

***Please be careful when editing your Registry, make the proper backup***

Have a great day.
