Using View Layout Replicator for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011

I have been using the view replicator by tanguy for sometime now. It is a valuble time saver, and very user friendly to boot! If you want to replicate the columns/ formatting in a view to other views, this is a much better option to creating and modifying the properties one view at a time.

Here are the steps to set it up and get it running.

"Assembly must be registered in isolation" error during plugin registration in a non isolation mode

Recently I faced an issue trying to register a plugin assembly in isolation mode "none". Registering it in sandbox mode was not an option as the plugin was accessing external data. The CRM setup was using IFD authentication which really should not be a factor in this case.

The plugin registration tool is available as part of the crm 2011 sdk download in the following path: sdk\tools
\pluginregistration. Once the project is built, you can use the PluginRegistration.exe application to register the assembly, step and image. MSDN has step by step walkthrough of the registration process.
