Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 - Versions

I always try to make my posts as clear as possible. Right now I really have even a greater reason to be more clear since I don't want to end up being quoted by Mary Jo Foley and call my post funny and confusing as she did with Ben's post on the whole NDA thing.

Currently we basically have two versions with v3.0

  1. Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Small Business Edition
  2. Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Professional

So what versions do we have when releasing Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0? Will there be big changes? Is every version the same? Is it supported on Windows Server 2008? Since I expect a few questions around this topic I thought it was smart to dedicate a blog post to it.

The following versions will be available with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0:

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Workgroup Edition
This version is limited to 5 or fewer users. It can be installed on Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition, any of the supported Windows Server 2003 editions, or Microsoft Windows Server 2008. This version is limited to a single organization and a single computer that is running Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Server.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Professional Edition
This version has no user limit and is limited to a single organization. Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Professional Edition Server can, however, be installed to more than one computer.

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Enterprise Edition
This version has no user limit. Additional features include support for multiple organizations, multiple server instances, and role-based service installation. Rolebased services let you increase performance by installing component services on different computers.
