  1. Thank you for this post, it has been very helpfully!!!

    The entry in the regedit for CRM 4.0(4.0.7333.133) x64 was changed.

    I have found it at [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Products\9E397B7A8F20F884EB81796423BFEC50\InstallProperties]

    Thanks and best regards.
