Update Rollup 3 for Dynamics CRM 2013 Service Pack 1 is now available!
Posted by Greg Lief
On April 16, 2015, Microsoft released Update Rollup* 3 for Dynamics CRM 2013 Service Pack 1. The shortcut name is SP1 UR3; however, it might be easier to refer to this (and future updates) by their Build number, which in this case is 06.01.0003.0119.
On-Premises customers can download SP1 from this page. A complete list of the 60+ fixes can be found near the bottom of this page. The most significant fix addresses the removal of the showModalDialog function from Google Chrome. Several other fixes that have bedeviled our clients include:
- If the Sales Professional Connection Role is deleted, it is no longer possible to remove Sales Team members from an Opportunity.
- Intermittent (generally non-reproducible) InvalidCharacterError script error dialogs.
- Printer prompts for 8.3” (?) x 11” paper when printing a report created in Report Wizard.
- When running a report in CRM Online or when executing a Sandboxed plugin, the report or plugin may fail with an exception similar to the following:System.Security.SecurityException: Microsoft Dynamics CRM has experienced an error. Reference number for administrators or support: #B944196D: System.Security.SecurityException: Either a required impersonation level was not provided, or the provided impersonation level is invalid.
Also, note that this update introduces support for the following additional products:
- Apple OS X Yosemite (web client only)
- Google Chrome version 37 and later
- IE 12 (Compatibility Mode) (Best Effort Support only)
- Windows 10
- Microsoft SQL Server 2012 SP2
When in doubt, please refer to the comprehensive CRM 2013 compatibility list.
As always, I would suggest waiting a few weeks after the Update Rollup is deployed to allow for thorough testing before implementing it into your production environment.
*Astute readers may recall that, earlier this month, I announced the first Update Rollup for Dynamics CRM 2015. I also reiterated Microsoft’s statement that these will henceforth be referred to as “Updates” rather than “Update Rollups”. Why then is this package Update Rollup 3 et cetera rather than simply Update 3 et cetera? That is an excellent question, but only Microsoft can answer it.
