Installing Dynamics CRM 2011 on Server 2012 R2 Environment

When Windows Server 2012 R2 was first released, Dynamics CRM 2011 was not supported. However, with the release of UR13, Microsoft has specified that a Windows Server 2012 R2 environment is now suitable for installing Dynamics CRM 2011.

Unfortunately however, the installer does not run successfully without some manual modifications to the configuration. The installer comes prepackaged with UM6, but this still does not work correctly in Server 2012 R2. You will need to manually download the update and modify the configuration files for the installer in order for it to complete successfully.

For more detailed instructions on how to do this, please check out this guide.
