[CRM 2011] CRM 2011 and Windows XP

Can you develop applications for CRM 2011 using Visual Studio 2010 and Windows XP? Yes, but you will have to cheat a little bit 🙂
CRM 2010 is base on Windows Indentity Framework (WIF), which is not supported by XP. One way around is to deploy the following assemblies into the GAC of the development machine:

* Microsoft.IdentityModel.dll
* Microsoft.IdentityModel.resources.dll
* Microsoft.IdentityModel.WindowsTokenService.dll
* Microsoft.IdentityModel.WindowsTokenService.resources.dll

Those assemblies are the core of WIF and the ones that are needed by CRM 2011 libraries. You can download them from here.

About Ramon Tebar

Software Engineer specialised on Microsoft Technologies with experience in large projects for different industrial sectors as developer, consultant and architect. I enjoy designing and developing software applications, it is my job and one of my hobbies. I’m interested in design patterns, new technologies and best practices. Making those part of the ALM process is a great challenge. During the last years, I have specialised in Microsoft Dynamics CRM (now Dynamics 365). I customise and extend the platform to provide tailored solutions and integrations based on service-oriented architectures and messages queuing. Motivated by community events and contributor in blogs, technical books, open source projects and forums, I have been awarded Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) on Dynamics 365 (CRM) since 2012.
