CRM 4 Upgrade to CRM 2011 - Blank Type Name in Plugin Registration Tool

After an upgrade of CRM 4 to CRM 2011 the plugin registration tool will sometimes show (Plugin) instead of the actual plugin type name.

The reason is because of the PluginTypeBase table the Name field is blank. Here’s an unsupported way of copying back the TypeName to the Name field.

  1. Go into the SQL Server
  2. Open up SQL Management Studio
  3. Run the query below on your *_MSCRM database
UPDATE PluginTypeBase
    SET Name = TypeName
