CRM 3 development environment

I'm seeking clarity on the software needed to develop reports for CRM
3.

I used  Visual Studio 2005 (with the Business Intelligence Development
Studio client component from a SQL Server 2005 disk) to develop custom
reports for CRM. Doing this, I'm prompted to convert existing CRM
report to a current version.

Would this be because they are targeted at a Visual Studio 2003
development environment? If so, what is the add-in I need for VS 2003
to develop reports, and where can I get it?

My CRM 3 database is on a SQL Server 2005. Am I wrong in assuming the
Reporting Services that houses the CRM reports I'm exporting is also
2005? Due to being prompted to convert to the existing CRM reports to a
current version when using Visual Studio 2005, I'm thinking that the
Reporting Services might be a version prior to 2005 (i.e. SQL Server
2000)?

Hi.

With SQL 2005 you get SRS (SQL Reporting Services) 2005. With SQL 2000 you 
get SRS 2000.
As for the client tools, SRS 2005 requires Visual Studio 2005 + Business 
Intelligence (from the SQL 2005 cd). SRS 2000 requires Visual Studio 2003 + 
SRS Client Tools (from the SRS installation cd or the CRM cd).

The native CRM reports come in SRS 2000 format because they have to support 
SRS 2000 servers. There is no problem with upgrading them as long as you plan 
to deploy them to a SRS 2005 server.

publisher templates #3
I have read the posting from Liz asking for a way to creat half fold cards in Publisher. After reading the suggestions via further postings, I wish Microsoft would explain why they chose to remove the 3rd option for a half fold card from its' more recent edition. It was SO much easier and handier to click the 3rd option of page setup to create a half fold card. I have the Avery textured half-fold cards and I used them with the earlier verson of Publisher.

Hello to all. I am a CRM newbie.... and I am looking for a little help... We installed Microsoft CRM v1.2 on a Windows SBS2003 server.

timers #3
Hi I am having problems with timers, or more like the rate at which they go off. In this particular example I am setting a timer to go off every 25 milliseconds (40Hz rate). Judging by my printf's in DoTimer() function, the timer goes off at 32Hz rate. Another words, instead of going off every 25 milliseconds it goes off every 31 (or so) milliseconds. I'd like to know why it's happenning and how can I fix it. I can see that once the timer expires, it doesn't get restarted until my handler will return. But I don't think my handler is taking 6 milliseconds... Also, if it&...

First rule of UI software development
UI response is the #1 determinant of the user's perception of performance. That's why it is so important to give the user immediate feedback, even if there is more work being done in the background. I just upgraded from Money 2004 to Money 2007. Now, I actually dread having to click on something. I could read a book while each screen loads. I have read all the data I could find on improving performance, but to no avail. And of course I was forced into the update because stock prices would no longer update on Money 2003.
