Installing CRM SDK

Jul 15, 2010 at 12:21 AM

I cannot find any documentation on installing the SDK for CRM. I assume that I have to manually copy folders to CRM folders (under Program Files...).

I have Update 11 install and am guessing that I will need to install those updates again if I install/copy the SDK to the CRM folders. Correct?

Thanks in advance

The SDK is to be used in your development projects, and therefore, there is no need to copy the SDK anywhere other than unpacking it on your development workstation.  You will use the CRM SDK and include references to some of the DLLs in your own projects, but the assemblies that are required on the CRM server are already there.  The only exception is that if you are developing applications that live in the ISV folder, you may have to copy some of the new microsoft.xrm files into the appropriate folder on the server.  These additional DLLs should be treated like your own custom DLLs and be deployed in the appropriate location with no special treatment.
