solution
then i found that, its missing the plugin(dll), as it has been registered in the DISC and while moving to another VPC, the resepctive plugin was not thr in bin/assemplies folder.
so once u ll put the dll, it will work happily.

Tab Concept in MS CRM 2011 compared to MS CRM 4.0

hi, we know that in MS CRM 2011 there is a big change in tab concept.

in 4.0 it was tabs as side-to-side, where as in 2011 its coming as hyperlinks in the left side of the page.
In 4.0, only the content of the selected tab loads when the form loads.
and the other content of the tabs loaded when we click those tabs.
So it saves time to load the form and also loads faster.
this mostly helps if we are using some IFRAME or the subgridsin the form etc.

but in crm 2011, all the content are in a single form, so all things will get loaded cuz all the items will be visible to the user.

this also we can manage in MS CRM 2011, by doing the following....

By not expanding the tab by default, Silverlight, iFRAMES and also the SUBGRIDS won't load until the tab is clicked so we can get the "on demand" loading like CRM 4.0. Also if we have Javascript hiding/showing fields on tabs other than the main one then we won't see the form jumping around on those tabs that are collapsed onload.
Thanks,

Mawimum record limit is exceeded in CRM 2011, Reduce the number of records

this is happens if the number of records happens to fetch is more than 50,000.
cuz it has been set in the DB as the max size.
So if you will get the exception , When we open a chart in CRM2011 we get an error "Maximum record limit is exceeded. Reduce the number of records".
then it can be managed by increasing the 50,000 to more value as per your scenario.
and it can be set in the DB only.
to do so please follow this...

Set AggregateQueryRecordLimit to 99,999,999(your expected value) in the DeploymentProperties table.
note: if required make a restart of the services or iis restart. then it should work fine.

thanks,
Sudhanshu
