Help!!!!! Problem with an upgrade from CRM 1.2 to 3.0
I was upgrading from CRM 1.2 to 3.0 when my server ran out of space due
to the log file growing was to big. This crashed the install. I fixed
the log file issue and went to try to redo the upgrade. The issue came
into play that while I was doing the intial upgrade to 3.0 my Crystal
db was removed and now any time I try to upgrade to 3.0 I get a
malformed xml error with the crm database. I have the MSCRM and
METADATA db's backed up so I have all my companies data but now I need
to finish the upgrade. Can anybody help?
When I've done upgrades I've found the key thing i...Publishing an internal CRM web site using ISA
I was wondering if its possible to publish an internally hosted CRM 1.2 web
site to the internet using ISA 2000 ?
I've done the basics as far setting up the web publishing and when I try and
pull up the site, I get a network logon prompt which I think makes
sense since the site seems to use network authentication to determine who
you are. What I cannot figure out, is what to enter at this login
prompt. I've tried my account, the administrator account and no luck.
Anybody have any idea what to do ?

I seem to be getting an error near the end of the CRM Mobile 3.0 setup
saying that "Unable to add users to CRM Mobile Security Group". I'm
installing on the CRM 3.0 Professional server as an Administrator and i've
select my account as the one to do the install under. I've run the active
directory repair tool that put the Organization ID at the end of the
UserGroup and SQLAccess security groups.
Any help would be appreciated..

I have an excel file which comprises of a template for Identity card with a
jpg file embedded in it. I would like to save this file in a jpeg format so
as to get a photo printout of the same. How is this possible?
If you scan the document, that would put the file into an image format.
Then you could convert the file to whatever image file format you wanted.
Just a thought...
Highlight the area you want printed then hold SHIFT key and select Edit>Copy
Open your favorite graphics editor or MS Paint and paste to there.
Save as *.jpg

I want to setup Exchange for a small international company. 4 offices
around the globe, 2 in Europe, 1 in Asia, 1 in US. Only have one
domain name. Currently, each subdomain is controlled by each branch
independently. So, it's us.domain.com, and uk.domain.com, etc. We
want to consolidate it. There are only 40 employees spread across the
globe and everyone potentially travels or works remotely from
time-to-time. I want all the functionality of a domain server for the
entire company, VPN and full functionality of Exchange (especially
calendar and global access lists)

We have several queues in CRM which are populated with emails by the email
router. Most of the time everything works fine, but sometimes things go wrong.
When a user sends a mail to a wrong address CRM is able to send the mail
out, but the actual mailbox gets a reply about the message being
undeliverable. Since the email router monitors this mailbox, the error
message is also placed in the queue. As far as I know that is normal
The problem is that this mail does not arrive 1 time in CRM but a couple of
hundreds of times.
