When trying to connect to Dynamics CRM server from Scribe you often get an error.

First thing to check is the real error. You do that by expanding error box by clicking “Details” (1).

Next, list through errors with “Next” (2), first one will always (?) be useless and just showing “ADP”.


The real error is then shown.


If you run Scribe on Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2 or later with UAC enabled, you will get “Requested access is not allowed”. If you read complete error, you will notice it is not CRM related at all. Scribe is trying to write current connection info to registry in order to help you next time you will try to connect to CRM.

Resolution is very simple, but I still fall for this, so that is why I'm writing it down:

Run Scribe Workbench and Scribe Console with elevated privileges – right click and select “Run as Administrator”!
