Installing CRM 2011 SSRS Data Connector on Windows Server 2012

I will share some information with you about installing CRM 2011 SSRS Connector in Windows Server 2012. You might already have customers that use SQL Server 2012 and Windows server 2012.
Lets say you want to install SQL 2012 on a Windows Server 2012 and then use SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services for your Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 server.
Even though CRM 2011 is not supported with Windows Server 2012 yet.

During the installation of CRM SSRS Connector you will get an error.
The error message is Windows Identity Foundation Installation failed
The error looks like this.
error Win 2012 server

To get around the setup error you must add Windows Identity Foundation from Features. In Windows Server 2012 WIF is a Server feature. So just add the feature.

After you have added the Feature you can run the setup again.

Next the setup will continue to install Microsoft .Net Framework 4 if it’s not already installed.
Remember that Windows Server 2012 is not supported for CRM 2011 yet.
Check out Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Compatibility list to see the versions that are Supported.
I really look forward to learn more about Windows Server 2012 !
And I’m currently spending my evenings with SQL 2012 preparing for exam 70-462.
So much new things to learn, really exciting Ler
