Problem with installing CRM on machine with Microsoft .NET Framework 4 installed

I was setting up a VPC today and during the checks I got the following error:
“ASP.NET 2.0 is not installed”

Very weird. I had it installed and I tried repairing the installation and running aspnet_regiis -i on the ASP.NET 2.0 framework. After some googling I found that this was due to Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 installed and this excellent blog explaining what was wrong and how to fix it. I did, however, have to remove the ISAPI filter for .NET Framework 4.0. Check it out here:

New webpage for CRM-Konsulterna

The work with starting the new company is coming along fine. We recently launched the new website where we tell everyone who’d like to know I bit more about the company and what we offer.

It is currently available only in Swedish, but Google Translate will probably work if you really want to read it and feel a bit weak on the Swedish.

We will try to attract the best Microsoft Dynamics CRM consultants in Sweden and hope to build a very interesting company where we can all excel and really bring value to our customers.

Please have a look!

IFD on Windows Server 2008 R2 problem with plugin registration

A customers system I was working on today has just been reconfigured to and IFD setup. The server is a Windows Server 2008 R2 and I had made sure that it worked on port 80 with NTLM/AD internally. However, when I tried to connect the plugin registration wizard in the normal manner, it just gave me an error:

“Request IP Address has different address family from network address.”

I found and interesting thread on Egghead café where some guys had run in to the same problem.–ipv6-related-problem.aspx

So I did as they suggested, added the servername to the hosts-file to the IP If you don’t know what this means, it works as a local DNS. The IP is assigned to always be the local computer and “localhost” is usually directed to this adress. You can try by browsing to it if you havn’t tried.

The hosts file can be found in C:WindowsSystem32Driversetchosts. There are usually an entry or two in there so you can usually figure it out, the syntax is simple: servername

If you tried pinging the servername before doing this, you would get the IP v6 address, after doing this, you will get an answer from and after confirming this, you should have no problems getting it up and running.
