UrlRewriteModule error while Installing Dynamics CRM 2016 On-premises

By | October 20, 2016

Introduction:

Anyone would imagine Dynamics CRM installation to be a task as simple as downloading and executing the setup file and stepping through the wizard and its done!!

But No!! It’s not always done :( While it would work smoothly on some systems, it would error on others and this was one of the errors we received the last time we tried installing.

Error:

“A network error occurred while attempting to read from the file: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM\UrlRewriteModule\rewrite_2.0_rtw_x64.msi”

UrlRewriteModule error in Dynamics CRM

Solution:

Since the requested msi file was missing at the specified location, we downloaded this “rewrite_2.0_rtw_x64.msi” file from https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/confirmation.aspx?id=7435 and copied this file to “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM\UrlRewriteModule” folder

Now you can Retry the Dynamics CRM installation. And the issue was fixed!
