CRM 2011 Update Rollup 4

Update Rollup 4 is released for use.  There are some good fixes in UR 4 that you might need.  However, before applying UR 4 to your production environment, you will want to note that once installed, you can not uninstall.  As with all Updates, you should first apply this Update to a test environment, after backing up your database, and fully test it before installing to production.  This is even more important for Update Rollup 4 as once installed it can not be uninstalled.  The only remedy for removing Update Rollup 4 is to restore to a point in time prior to when the Update was installed.

As always, Update Rollup 4 is a cumulative update which means it includes Update Rollup 1, 2 and 3.  Here are a few highlights of the release:

  • You cannot open Microsoft Dynamics CRM after you install Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 in an environment that has Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 Prerelease installed.
  • When you open a service activity, click Schedule, and then click Find Available Times, incorrect available times are listed.
  • Consider the following scenario:
  • You create two unmanaged solutions.
    • You export the solutions as managed.
    • You import the managed solutions.
    • You import the first solution again by using the Overwrite setting
    • In this scenario, an unmanaged layer is generated and some original fields are missing.
  • When the duplicate detection is enabled, you cannot convert a lead to an opportunity.
  • Records are visible regardless of the security role unexpectedly. This problem occurs because of the cascading in the POA table.

There is a long list of issues that are addressed in Update Rollup 4 so check it out and see if this Update Rollup is one you should apply.

Cheers,
