Since Microsoft first released Microsoft CRM 2011 (in early 2011) they have released several update rollups. Each update rollup fixes several problems that have been identified since the initial release. It is generally recommended that you keep your CRM patched with the latest release. However, it can often be difficult to know which update rollup has been applied to an installation of Microsoft CRM.
To determine which update rollup has been applied to your installation look at Help About (found on the File Menu. The Help About window will look similar to this image.
The update rollup that has been applied to your installation is indicated by the number in brackets after the CRM 2011, and in particular the final four digits. An explanation of the numbers and their corresponding release numbers is given below:
