CRMBuzz Power Tools Module Installation

The framework designed and developed for integration and connecting PowerShell automation and flexibility to Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013/2015

The installation is been one of the most common questions on the use of the framework, these are step by step instructions on how to install and use the PowerShell tool.


        1. Open PowerShell
        2. type the following command, to let PowerShell use the most updated .Net framework version (required .Net 4.5.2)

          Reg Add HKLM\Software\Microsoft\.NetFramework /v OnlyUseLatestCLR /t REG_DWORD /d 1

          Reg Add HKLM\Software\wow6432node\Microsoft\.NetFramework /v OnlyUseLatestCLR /t REG_DWORD /d 1

        3. Unzip the zip file and create a folder where you will put the binaries, we will use by default the following c:\PowerShell\CRMBuzz
          Md PowerShell
          cd PowerShell
          Md CRMBuzz
          cd CRMBuzz
        4. after unzipping the file and adding the files on the default folder, we will need to add 2 of the files to the GAC, using the following command.\gacutil.exe .\microsoft.crm.sdk.proxy.dll
          .\gacutil.exe .\microsoft.xrm.sdk.dll
        5. Close the PowerShell session, the next time you open a new PowerShell session will have these setting integrated.

Open a new PowerShell session and now you can use the following command to use the module

Import-Module .\CRMBuzz.PowerTools.PSSnapin.dll -Force -WarningAction SilentlyContinue -DisableNameChecking

To validate that the module is available to use, you can validate using the following command

Get-Command -pssnapin CRMBuzz.PowerTools.PSSnapin
