Last week I attended the Convergence in London. It took place in the Twickenham stadium just outside London. For CRM the convergence was all about CRM 2011 so great breakout sessions.
The highlights of the convergence are:
- Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 will be global released in January 2011
- Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online will be released in January 2011
- Price of CRM Online will be €31 per user per month
- New features in CRM 2011 like field level security, managed solutions module, new workflow foundation engine, .NET 4.0 based, solution packaging, improved webservices, improved performance and lots more.

Tomorrow the Convergence 2010 will take place in The Hague and I will attend the first CRM 2011 training at Microsoft The Netherlands Schiphol on friday.

More posts regarding CRM 2011 will follow soon.

Error installing update rollup 7 on the CRM server

I received the following error when I tried to install rollup 7 on the CRM servers:
Microsoft.Crm.UpdateWrapper.DBUpdateAction failed

Please check that if you are running a 64bit OS and CRM installation, the update rollup 7 must be installed also on the 64bit version.
If you are using the language packs you can install rollup 7 32bit for the languages packs and install the latest rollup 64bit on the servers.
