CRM Developer Tools in Visual Studio 2015


It seems CRM Developer Tools are not getting much love from Microsoft lately.

The versions available for CRM 2013 where only for VS2013 and V2012 It’s not been release as part in CRM 2015 SDK yet.

…and VS 2015 is just around the corner…

But there is always a way, ;)…













There are known work around (e.g.: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 Toolkit with Visual Studio 2013) to make this work on VS2013 but I found none so far to deal with VS2015.

After looking around and doing some tests I found a MVW (Minimum Viable Workaround, ;)) to make this work. Two simple steps should do it, as per below:

Add the below to devenv.exe.config

<dependentAssembly>

<assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft.Windows.Design.Host" publicKeyToken="b03f5f7f11d50a3a" culture="neutral" />

<bindingRedirect oldVersion="4.0.0.0-4.1.0.0" newVersion="4.2.0.0" />

</dependentAssembly>

Install Microsoft.CrmDeveloperToolsVS2015.vsix (my own version with just a view tweaks considering the workaround for VS2013, as per blog linked above)
