No option to select CRM connection in Visual Studio 2012
Even though Solution has a CrmPackage as part of it and developer tool is installed.
Tried deploying it but obviously got error
The connection to the Dynamics CRM Server is unavailable.Error: The connection to the Dynamics CRM Server is unavailable.
This is because we don’t have a valid connection. Usually this happens when you move solution from source safe to an other solution or create a copy of it.
Looked at MS Visual Studio Solution file (open in notepad) and there is a Global section
Inside Global section CRM part was missing
Added code below to make it work
GlobalSection(CRMSolutionProperties) = preSolution
SolutionIsBoundToCRM = True
After adding above code and restarting visual studio with my solution all worked perfect and I was able to connect to CRM and deploy plugin
