CRM 4.0 Update Rollup 8
Last Thursday, December 17, Microsoft released the latest update to Dynamics CRM, Update Rollup 8. You can find the update files and information on the update from Microsoft KB KB 975995. Or you can go directly to the download files and information here. Both 32 and 64 bit versions are available for the server updates but only 32 bit is available for the client update.
Since the previous update, Update Rollup 7 was considered a benchmark update, it is required before you can install UR8 on the Outlook client. It is not required to update the server. I decided to try the Client update first to see what happens. If you are running Windows 7 as I am, you will need to run the update as an administrator, otherwise you get a message stating it requires elevation. The KB states that you must restart your client computer after installing the update but the update does not require it. On the other hand the server updates do require a reboot.
I am running Outlook 2010 Beta so I will be looking to see what compatibility issues are resolved with UR8. So far it seems to look and act the same. We’ll see. There is some speculation about that this update will address the 64 bit Outlook. I doubt this since there is not a 64 bit client rollup.
