  1. Hello Smiti Shah,

    I’ve tried to access http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948203 to check all fixes “new to Update Rollup 2” but seems like it’s a broken link. Could you please check this out?

    Best Regards,

    Apologies and clarification.

    All fixes new to Update Rollup 3 are available on http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935364.  That will provide a reference to Microsoft Knowledge Base article 922815, and 927751 which lists all fixes shipped via Update Rollup 1 and Update Rollup 2

    I tried to access the download site http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=D5B1FBBE-DFC2-4A33-B5FD-CAE99E8E9DAB and it seems like it is a broken link also.  In fact if you search the downloads it doesn’t come up with Update Rollup 3 at all.  Can you please check this out?

  5. Igor says:

    The links is inaccessible. Did Microsoft recall this update?

  6. Andrew Wolfe says:

    If you follow the link to the KB article, that used to be a full full description of the updates, Version 2 of the article now just says:

    Microsoft is currently working on a re-release of Update Rollup 3 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0.  This article will be updated with information about the re-release when it is available.

    I have both the Client and Server rollups downloaded, I’m thinking that I shouldn’t deploy them anywhere until Microsoft fix whatever was wrong with them

  7. I am facing following message known in Rollout2

    Error message 3

    When you try to install Update Rollup 2, you receive the following error message:

    Setup failed to update the database. The installation of this update has stopped. Contact Customer Support Services.

    Unfortunatly there is no solution in Rollout 3 for this and the Rollout 2 solutions does not work 🙁

    Any idea how we can fix this?

    Thanks

    Sascha
