  • Install using the media from the Microsoft download site - not the volume license site. - That allows you to start with a version that has UR6 installed and then install the UR11.2 on to the server.  

    (The volume license version does not include UR6, you'd have to install it separately and UR6 is the baseline for all updates UR6 through at least UR14.)

  • if you have a test server install there and test the behavior and if everything working fine install that to your production Server

    if you don't have a test server , take full backup of the CRM databases and web.config file before applying the Update rollups

  • Does UR6 include the actual Outlook client for a machine that has never had CRM installed before?
