CRM 4.0 MSDN License Key Usage Change

Jackie Wilson Said…

I upgraded one of my CRM 3.0 demo systems last week and used the CRM 4.0 Professional Edition 90-Day Trial license key. Shortly afterwards, I noticed that CRM 4.0 was available on MSDN Subscriber Downloads so I thought I’d upgrade to the MSDN license key. However, when I fired up Deployment Manager and tried to upgrade the license key I got the following message:

The license code entered is not valid for upgrade. Make sure you have entered the license code correctly, and then try again.

I thought this might be down to a problem with my environment, but then I received an e-mail from Rob Clough telling me he had the same issue. I haven’t heard anything from our product team in the US, but I have to assume that we have change the way we are allowing MSDN license keys to be used. I’ll follow this up with the product team and let you know what I find out.
