Microsoft CRM 01-17-06
We have installed CRM on our server and can access it from a web browser or
MS Outlook. However it is very slow to loadforms or access any area of CRM -
often taking 5 minutes or more before a page is retrieved. Is this a firewall
We're seeing this as well (CRM 3.0). The performance is inconsistant
-- sometimes it is quite good, other times it is taking upwards of a
minute or two to display a screen. The worst offenders are the Leads
and Opportunities screen.
The system is running in a test environment under Virtual Server 2005

faster to be able to enter the list and then submit the list for processing.

need to change Internet Explorer Security Settings to allow unsigned ActiveX
controls to download/execute, we feel that this not a acceptable solution).
This is specific to Internet Explorer Security settings.

When using Microsoft CRM 1.2 integrated with Outlook 2002, many of my
