If you are installing CRM 4.0 on a machine without Internet access (eg. a VPC running only on a Loopback Adapter) you might run into some problems when CRM tries to download pre-requisite packages. Our DVD version (not out yet - it’s being ‘manufactured’) ships with these prerequisites but the downloads do not.
The simplest way is to install each of the Pre-Req’s manually. The best place to search for these is download.microsoft.com. I’ll refrain from posting links as these redistributable packages are always being updated.
The Visual C++ Redistributable Package presents us with a slightly different challenge. The package is unable to detect it’s installed state so CRM always installs it. So we need to create a Redist folder, subfolders for i386/amd64, a VCRedist folder and then place the VC++ install files there. Your full folder structure should look like this:

  • \Redist\i386\VCRedist\vcredist_x86.exe
  • \Redist\i386\VCRedist\vcredist_x64.exe
  • \Redist\amd64\VCRedist\vcredist_x64.exe
  • \Server\i386\SetupServer.exe
  • \Server\amd64\SetupServer.exe
  • \Client\SetupClient.exe
  • \DMWizard\SetupDMClient.exe
  • \Exchange\i386\setupexchange.exe
  • \Exchange\amd64\setupexchange.exe
    I added this setup.exes to the list to show the folder structure for the Server, Client, DM and Router (the Exchange folder). Note that the Redist folder is a peer to the Server and Client.

自己上 MS 的网站上去下载 VC++ Runtime
新建一个目录,比如 MSCRM4, 在该目录下再建立如下目录
MSCRM4\Redist\i386\VCRedist\vcredist_x86.exe
MSCRM4\Redist\i386\VCRedist\vcredist_x64.exe
MSCRM4\Redist\amd64\VCRedist\vcredist_x64.exe
MSCRM4\Server\i386\SetupServer.exe
MSCRM4\Server\amd64\SetupServer.exe
MSCRM4\Client\SetupClient.exe
MSCRM4\DMWizard\SetupDMClient.exe
MSCRM4\Exchange\i386\setupexchange.exe
MSCRM4\Exchange\amd64\setupexchange.exe

红色的就是表示 VC++ runtime 文件所要放置的位置
蓝色的表示 MS CRM4.0 Server 的安装程序所在位置

因为CRM4的安装程序需要上网去更新一些组件,如果你的服务器不能上网的话,就请参照此目录结构建立文件夹和放置正确的文件,这样就能跳过网上下载安装。
