Assemblies Included in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM SDK

The CRM SDK documentation have lots of interesting pages but often they go unread by me because I don’t read the CRM SDK as much as  I should.

What usually happens is I am searching the internet to try and solve a problem and I will randomly turn up on a really useful page, which you can see below.

Assemblies Included in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM SDK

When developing CRM customizations you will use a number of CRM dll’s and the page describes the dll name and what it does.  Developers will probably know what the DLL’s do but I found it interesting to read the description of each namespace.

The list below was correct for CRM 2011 and I can’t find one for CRM 2013, I think the dll’s will be quite similar between the versions of CRM
Microsoft.Crm.Sdk.Proxy.dll
Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.dll
Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.Workflow.dll
Microsoft.Crm.Tools.EmailProviders.dll
Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.Deployment.dll
The article also mentions the namespaces and has more descriptive information, so it’s worth reading the article
