Dynamics 365 – Plug-in registration tool – Unable to connect to organization

Other day, I could not connect to my 30 days trail Dynamics 365 organization (V 9.0) using Plug-in registration tool, which was working fine until a day before.

Issue was weird as the moment I select my organization after login, I was redirecting back to Plug-in ‘Login’ page with no exception details.

You may also get below exception, if your plug-in registration tool shows exception and when you download the Error log.

Error - 1

Reason and Fix:

  • Issue was with old version of Plug-in registration tool. You must have version.
  • Download the PluginRegistrationTool v9.0.0.7 from nuget by following below steps
    • Open Visual Studio
    • Go to Tools -> NuGet Package Manager -> Manage NuGet packages for Solution
