AVAILABLE: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Demonstration Tools


We heard your feedback loud and clear, besides a VPC with software we needed to provide you with better tools so you can easier customize the VPC for demo scenarios.

We did just that! We created a Demo Tool that helps you with that. An easy to use tool that gives you the options to create new emails, move data, create sample data entries, an Icon Maker and even a String Replacer. Besides this, it also allows you to load and store your data in XML format, so that you can reuse your data in the future.

Download it here

In order to use any of the tools you will first need to connect to CRM.  To do this, open the application click the button at the top that says "The application is not yet connected to Microsoft Dynamics CRM". In the Connection Information window verify the URL is correct and enter your user name, domain, and password.  Click Connect and the Organization picklist will populate. Select your organization and click OK.

    I had the exact same problem, but was also having problems starting the Communications Server as well. I was having problems with Kerberos in the event log and found the solution to that here http://blogs.msdn.com/mscrmfreak/archive/2007/11/16/enjoy-microsoft-dynamics-crm-4-0-rc0-vpc.aspx.

    On following the solution by Anoniem in the comments I rebooted and suddenly I can connect to CRM from the demo tools.

    Hope this helps.
