CRM 2011 Update Rollup release build numbers, and how to find them

The Build list has been updated up to Update Rollup 13. :-)

As many Dynamics CRM 4.0 aficionados know, Microsoft releases regular updates to iron out documented issues.  CRM 2011 is no exception, as several Update Rollups have already been released since RTM.

Note that the On-Premise build numbers I list below may be different than what you will find in CRM 2011 Online.  Microsoft continuously adds new updates behind the scenes, thus the likelihood of having a greater build number in comparison to the latest Update Rollup version.

To determine your current build number from the IE web client, simply:

  1. Browse to your CRM 2011 website
  2. Click on the File tab
  3. Navigate to Help
  4. Click on “About Microsoft Dynamics CRM”

To determine your current build number from the Outlook CRM client:

  1. Open Outlook with the CRM Client installed
  2. Click on the File tab
  3. Click on the CRM side tab
  4. Click on the “About Microsoft Dynamics CRM”  button
A window will pop up with your build number listed.  If you used Outlook, you will see the build numbers for both the Server and Outlook CRM Client (sample screenshot below).
See below for a chart of the Dynamics CRM 2011 build versions.  I’ll try to keep it current, so be sure to bookmark and check back later!

  1. Hi,

    Is there also a way to check the versions of the connected clients? So that I do not have to go and manually check each client?

    Best Regards,

  2. Bjorn,

    In that case, it’s better to push the updates out to your users instead. Check the Implementation Guide, or to summarize this post:

    1. Use the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Update feature that is described in the CRM Implementation Guide. Note that users will have to be members of the Local Administrators group for this method to work.
    2. Use the Microsoft systems management product, System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), (formerly Systems Management Server (SMS)) or similar third-party product.
    3. Use Group Policy to deploy updates. Group Policy is a feature of Active Directory and is reasonably straightforward to setup. The advantage of using Group Policy is that users do not need to be members of the Local Administrator Group.

  3. I need to update someone from RTM to rollup 6. Can this be performed as an update or do I need to uninstall RTM first?

  4. FYI, Since I couldn’t find any list like this elsewhere, I figured I’d help others looking for the same thing who ended up here.

    Update Rollup 9 for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 was not released because of a delay in the Q2 Service Update. Any issues to be addressed in 9 were addressed in Update Rollup 10.
