Microsoft Online Services Sign-in Assistant for MS CRM 2011 Email router installation

While installing Email Router for MSCRM 2011, i face the following issue.
While the installer was installing the pre-requisites, it could not install the "Microsoft Online Services Sign-in Assistant" and the version it asked it more that 7.2.
I googled but could not get the proper link to download so and install it. With put that you can not go ahead and install the Email Router Component.
but you can get the link from your log file, and the path to get the log file is Log file path.
and find the portionas in the image, the highlighted portion is the URL to download the component.

to download the URL is as follows(for 64 bit)

Unable to delete a Boolean attribute from the Entity in MSCRM 2011

I came across a weired situation in MSCRM 2011 like as follows...
let 1st put the steps i did, then what problem i faced and then the solution :P

i created one boolean attribute and put it in form for some use.
then i have one workflow which is updating/creating the record on the entity.
then i came to a scenario that , i do not need the attribute anymore in the form, so i have deleted from the form(this was no where used in the views).(ofcuz i have published in each step)

then when i tried to delete the attribute from the entity's field list, i could not delete that and it CRM throws some error as the image.

Onclick of the details link i got the details as the other image2...
Why it was not deleting cuz, the attribute was still present in the worflow form and the value was default to "No".

i just kick my mind and tried to cheat MSCRM...
What i tot is to make that value to blank, then it can be deleted.
what i did is, i selected that Field and tried to update the field form other boolean type value(or same also you can assign).Our main intention is to make that field of blank value.

then i deleted the yellow slected portion by clicking on it..
now the field does not have any value selected
save the workflow entity form.
and now go and delete the field from the Entity Field list, you will be able to delete ot happily :P
hats OFF to MS...

Hope this will help to those guys, who want to make their CRM clean , by cleaning the unused attributes... (people can think, if no use and can not delete, let it be there in the field list, as it has been deleted from the form :P).

you do not have sufficient permission to run this exe, while installing MS CRM 2011

while installing MSCRM 2011, i was installing with minimum (MS CRM 2011 installation with minimun credential).
So while running the command "..../serversetup.exe /config config.xml" , then i got error you do not have sufficient permission to run it.
even if i had local admin privilege to the server.
then i ran the windows command window as "run as administrator", then put the command in th command prompt , then it started working... :P


The Permissions granted to user 'domainname\myusernamehere' are insufficient for performing this operation. (rsAccessDenied)

When i was installing MSCRM 2011, i installed SQL Server 2008 r2.
while accessing the reportserver, i got the error message "The Permissions granted to user 'domainname\myusernamehere' are insufficient for performing this operation. (rsAccessDenied)".
but i had localadmin privilege to that server.

then i ate my head, finally i got it work, just ran the IE "run as administrator" then it worked :P

even if you have given the system admin role to the suer, u will not be able to get all the features the admin used to get.
so just check the cal in the users' licensing section and make sure its 'read write" and "full" as atached in the images.
