    I have begun working with your metadata browser and am running into an issue on loading the solution. I receive this Silverlight error:

    Debugging resource strings are unavailable. Often the key and arguments provide sufficient information to diagnose the problem. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=106663&Version=4.0.60531.0&File=System.dll&Key=Async_ExceptionOccurred

    at CRM.Tools.MetadataBrowser.Views.EntityList.ExecuteRetrieveEntities_ExecuteCompleted(Object sender, ExecuteCompletedEventArgs response)
    at CRM.Tools.MetadataBrowser.CrmSdk.OrganizationServiceClient.OnExecuteCompleted(Object state)

    Just want to thank you for all of your development contributions to the community, they have been very helpful to me and my colleagues.

      Hi Shane,

      I’ve seen a couple of people mention this on the codeplex site under Issue Tracker and Discussions. I think the last resolution I remember was regarding the server url being used was causing a cross domain issue or similar. Hopefully this may help.


      As it only affects a small number of people and I cannot reproduce it myself it is hard to provide a reliable fix for this error. If you can provide further details that you think might help towards a resolution then I’ll be happy to check it out. I think if you use the OData tool you should receive the same error, if not then this may narrow it down.

      That’s awesome that you are getting some use out of the tools.
