Update Rollup 17 For Dynamics CRM 2011 is Released

Following up my previous post on the compatibility issue of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 with Windows 8.1 and Internet Explorer 11 here. Microsoft recently released Update Rollup 17 that addressed those issues.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Update Rollup 17 is compatible with Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 11. This includes the following supported configurations.

  • The web application running in Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1 or Windows 7.
  • CRM for Outlook when you run Office 2013 on Windows 8.1.

Other than the above major fix/update, it also fixed some issues that I encountered:

  • Reports cannot be executed once the default filter form the report is removed and the update is saved. The execution fails with the following error on screen. “Reporting Error: The repot cannot be displayed”
  • Advanced Find date range with “last-x-fiscal-years” is wrong when exported to a Dynamic Worksheet

Complete list of issues addressed in this Rollup is available on the KB Article:

Everything seems good and cool. Windows 8.1 is lovely, Windows button is there, the UI is sleek and fluid, lots of Apps available in the store.
Until we come to our lovely Dynamics CRM 2011, IE 11 makes it not working properly anymore!

Why??!! 
This KB article mentioned about the Microsoft Dynamics CRM support for IE 11:

There are some options available:

1. Upgrade Your Microsoft Dynamics CRM to 2013 (Update Rollup 2 solves this compatibility)

Some good consideration when implementing UR by Donna Edwards: http://edwardsdna.com/2014/03/24/update-rollups-should-i-or-should-i-not-that-is-the-question/

2. Temporarily use Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox until you are ready to Upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 or UR on Dynamics CRM 2011 that supports IE 11.

Currently, Microsoft plans to add Internet Explorer 11 in compatibility mode as a supported web browser in the third quarter of calendar year 2014 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011.

Looking forward to see more organisations to upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 and taste the best of the upgrade!
