Missing ‘Connect to Dynamics CRM Server’ from visual studio solution

August 6, 2014 2 comments

I recently created a new Visual studio solution using Dynamics CRM 2013 Template.

So I get “Connect to Dynamics CRM Server” window whenever I open the solution, which allows me to connect my CRM Organization.

Later I added a new “Class Library” project to my solution.

Now surprisingly when I open the solution, I am not getting “Connect to Dynamics CRM Server” window also from ‘Tools’ Menu.

Reason

  • I opened my solution file (.sln) using notepad and observed below ‘Global Section’ is missing and overridden by newly added Project details.

GlobalSection(CRMSolutionProperties) = preSolution

SolutionIsBoundToCRM = True

EndGlobalSection

Fix

  • Add the ‘Global Section’ back to solution file using Notepad and Save it.

Creating a plug-in on SavedQuery entity using CRM developer toolkit

August 13, 2012 3 comments

In one of my requirement I have to create a plugin on “SavedQuery” entity to filter the views

I was using CRM developer toolkit and when I open the “CRM Explorer” I did not find “SavedQuery” entity

Later I came to know that “CRM Explorer” show entities by ‘Display Name’ and there was entity with name ‘View’ for ‘SavedQuery’
