Using CRM 2011 Beta SDK and facing “Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.IdentityModel, Version=3.5.0.0…

As you all know that CRM 2011 is out and people have already started working on it to get ready by Jan 2011[RTM Scheduled as of now].

However, compared to CRM 4’s beta I think CRM 2011 beta is really pathetic and many things are not working as of now. And that includes the SDK documentation as well. Seems like they have over-assumed and have made asses out of them and me. For example, I have some R&D apps in progress and I wanted to test them against CRM 2011 Online beta. I was facing some this error even after adding reference to Microsoft.IdentityModel assembly in VS 2010.

{“Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.IdentityModel, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.”:”Microsoft.IdentityModel, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35″}    System.Exception {System.IO.FileNotFoundException}”

 After some quick searches, I figured that this particular assembly is part of “Windows Identity Foundation Pack” and you can download it from here.
