Microsoft CRM 4.0 and Automatic Patching

This is a short description of how to rollout Rollup Fix 1 for Microsoft CRM using the automatic update feature in Microsoft CRM 4.0.


  1. Create a folder for the patches (example: C:Program FilesMicrosoft Dynamics CRMServercrmpatches)
  2. Create a virtual directory in the CRM website (or on another website) pointing to the folder created in paragraph 1.

    <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″?>

    Save the file as configtool.xml
