Welcome to Dynamics 365 community.
My friend, I am still getting that error. I am not able to proceed with the installation. I do not see in any of the documents that you showed.
It looks like you have trouble downloading visual c++.
Here is a link of how to install Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 without Internet.
You could download Microsoft visual c++separately through the links in the article.
Hope it helps
Thanks! I am not trying to install MS Dynamics CRM 2011, trying to install Dynamics 4.0 on Windows Server 2008 R2. This is a lab environment. I am trying to fix this.
Hi - I think there is in issue with the Visual C++ Runtime package. If you try to install it upfront and don't let the CRM installer patch it for you does it work? What I suspect happens the CRM installer (since it is an old build) package tries to grab the Visual C++ Runtime from a location that is no longer available - hence you get the exception.
I'd suggest you check the requirements and see what build you need and then download it from the internet and install it manually. Afterwards run the CRM installation.
Hope this helps,
According to your screenshot, I judged that your problem should be caused by the inability of Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime package to download and install.
Both MS Dynamics CRM 2011 and Dynamics 4.0 all need Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime package module.
So you could try to download and install Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime package through the link I provided and see if the issue still exists.
Quick question. Mine is a 64bit Intel Xeon processor (Virtualized). I am downloading it from
I only see the 32 bit option of the software. Other one that is mentioned DynamicsCRMServer_1033_amd64.exe, I guess this for AMD processor. Kindly clarify.
or is it 64 bit architecture
Hi partner， AMD64 is the name for the 64-bit instruction set the x64 Windows is runs on. It just happens to be AMD who invented the 64-bit x86 instruction set, which Intel copied later on. You could see more details in Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86-64
So you can download this software and install it.
Thanks Radu, yes I tried manually installing. VC++ running time minimum version is 11.0. When, I check the error logs. It just says "Requesting download of Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime installer from......."
When I search in the I get the link support.microsoft.com/.../the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads it has all the run time packages.
Which one do you think I should install?
Thanks!! tried the required libraries. But the setup is stalling. The log file records the URL its trying to fetch the libraries from, but its not able to. Here is the log details.
