Unable to find CRM Instance

It appears as if other people have experienced the "Can't Find CRM Server" 
installation error before; however, I don't see any posts on how to fix it.  
Please help!  I've been using the CRM Server for some time now with no 
problems.  Every time I try to install SFO, I get the following error: 

Setup was unable to find an instance of the CRM components. 

Thanks for your help.

I fixed this by ensuring in internet options, security for trusted sites 
(includes crm server) automatically authenticate with current 
username/password.
Using IE went to crm server, auth'd saving password.
When I retried SFO setup all fine.

Hi Nick,

I have tried your instructions below, but it failed...any other suggestions. 
 My colleague is running a German OS, I wonder if that has anything to do 
with it.  He's able to access CRM via IE.

MS CRM and MS SQL servers are installed on a same machine.

Thanks in advance.

Kim.

CRM Customisation
Hello, I have customised the Contact form by adding some additional fields to the first tab (General). Unfortunately the fields added mean that a scroll bar appears on the right hand side of the form when it opens. Is there any way I can change the default size of the form so that when it opens, all fields are visible? Graeme This can't be done with the standard CRM settings/tools. But an unsupported customization would be to search for the Global.js file in the CRM webdirectory. Edit the file and look for the openStdWin method. In this method the x and y size are set for the dia...
