  • We had 2 machines one with CRM application server and another with both “SQL server” & “SSRS Reporting services”
  • The reason in our case was, we were trying to install “Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Reporting Extension” on the CRM application server machine


  • You must run CRM Reporting Extensions Setup on a computer that has Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services installed
