Outlook 2010 + Dynamics CRM 4.0 Client

If you’re running Outlook 2007 with Dynamics CRM 4.0 Outlook Client, you’re probably wondering if the CRM client will continue to work…
Short answer is: YES!!! Open-mouthed

The trouble is installation process: works only on 32-bit Office, cannot be installed on Outlook 2010 (installer will complain that supported Outlook is not installed) – you have to upgrade Outlook 2007 with already installed CRM client.
After upgrade you’ll have to reenable CRM add-in by visiting “Add-ins” in “Outlook Options”: Office Button > Options.

UPDATE 12/3/2009:image
Outlook 2010 Beta and CRM Client Update Rollup 7 work and play like a charm! Just install from a link on a CRM page. No more upgrades from Office 2007 needed, but 32-bit Outlook is still a requirement.
 
Annoyances like pop-up warnings with IE8 are still “in-the-box!”… SadBut terrible startup when CRM server not available is SOLVED!!!! In mere seconds Outlook will report that CRM server is not available and continue loading without blocking… WOHOO!
