Deploy Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook by using Group Policy

[Applies to: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0]

You can deploy Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook by using Microsoft Group Policy. If you perform a Group Policy-based software deployment, you can publish the software and make it available to users from a list of applications in Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel. When you publish software for users, you give them the opportunity to decide if and when they want to install it.

Important

You must run the Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook Setup program (SetupClient.exe) by using the administrative installation option to create an MSI package (CRMClient.msi) for Group Policy deployment. You cannot use the MSI package (Client.msi) that is included with the Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook installation files to deploy by using Group Policy. For information about how to perform an administrative installation, see InstallMicrosoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook.
