CRM 2013 splash screen crash on Setup DVD / ISO

After so many years, with the Splash screen crash of CRM 2011, the boys at Microsoft have not bothered to fix that problem. You start the screen

Then before long you see this.

Search around the net, and you find a bunch of old data relating to CRM 2011 and the same problem. Some suggestions are to uninstall various version of IE (The worlds Words Browser) or other similar crap. Not really much help when you are on a Windows 2012 R2 server with the newest release of CRM install ISO. Note: This is the sort of stuff I hope the new CEO will fix one day!

Other Solutions incorrectly reference the files to install from.

Nina, nice to have you show some concern and a very professional post! I have been avoiding this bug for almost 5 years now, and have raised it at first hand with some engineers… figure I have done my bit already. Glad that someone as professional as yourself was not cut from the company on the recent cull. Thanks for showing concern.

Your workaround doesn’t work. No matter where you install it from, the result is still an APPCRASH referencing MSVCR100.DLL.

You should be browsing to the files. Try to copy the entire directory to HD and install from there. The entire point is to never hit the splash screen.
