  1. View designer fails to load:
    Could not load file or assembly ‘Cinteros.Xrm.XmlEditorUtils, Version=1.2016.4.106, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

  2. Hi Carl,

    do you know if is possible to change the column names ? I tried from “Edit Xml”, changing the “cell name” but later in the CRM view the row data is not visible.

    Thanks in advance
