Microsoft CRM 3.0 - unable to import sample data, invalid user name

Hi,

We've installed Microsoft CRM 3.0 successfully, but have problems
installing the sample data.

I have a 10 user licence, obtained from MSDN, and have setup test users
in Active Directory & CRM. I then run the
Microsoft.Crm.Tools.SampleDataWizard.exe and it allows me to pick four
users(I've actually setup more but it didn't give me anymore options)
from Active Directory. When I click NEXT to proceed to the next step it
just displays the message 'invalid user name' .

I tried with another set of users that had not been setup in CRM and
were just in AD, same error message.

Any ideas??

Hello Paul_Monaghan,

Ran into the same issue, and it turns out I didn't read the instructions. 
 By default the Administrator for 3.0 is installed with minimum security 
rights, which is the source of this rather obscure message.  So, go into 
CRM users, open the administrator and at the bottom of the page you will 
see a checkbox for Restricted access.  Give the administrator full rights 
- that should solve this issue for you.

Kind Regards

Thanks Eddie,

I did that, picked the names but when I click NEXT after the last name
it gave me an exception. See below.

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just in time (JIT) debugging, the config file for this
application or machine (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the machine
rather than being handled by this dialog.


It then blanks out the names and doesn't allow me to proceed.

Looking at some of the documentation in the installation guide it
suggests you don't have to be a domain administrator to execute this,
just a domian user. I tried it with a domain user and the
sampledatawizard.exe didn't even load.

Any further ideas??

Mistake in FTPTREE sample
Hello, While I am new to VC++ and the way it works, I regret to inform MSDN staff that their FTPTREE Sample comes with a problem.
