UrlRewriteModule error while Installing Dynamics CRM 2016 On-premises

By | October 20, 2016


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.


“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


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!
