Action Cancelled: MSCRMKeyGenerator - 18949

When openning the CRM shortcut you promptly receive the message "Action Cancelled"

Error log details:
Source:   MSCRMKeyGenerator
Event ID: 18949

Current active key (KeyType : CrmWRPCTokenKey) is expired. This can indicate that a key is not being regenerated properly. Current Active Key : CrmKey(Id:c2e0c738-dc7a-dd11-b61e-00188b3466e9, ScaleGroupId:00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000, KeyType:CrmWRPCTokenKey, Expired:True.....
I recently came across this error a few times. On all occasions I had no luck in sorting it out the usual way:

Start services.msc and ensure that Microsoft CRM Asynchronous Processing Service is started.

If like in my case, you find that this service was already running, then save yourself hours of scratching and simply restart the SQL Server housing the CRM database. 

I'm yet to find the specific reason behind this error.

Holiday travel through India

I've just returned from holidays over the past couple of months. Its been a holiday long awaited and well enjoyed.

I've just returned from India as a first time tourist. I managed to travel the Ragestan region and south through to goa on a death trap on two wheels... Royal Enfield 500. I can't believe those bikes were built in the first place.. India is still mass producing these 1950's mostrocities as the best model of two wheel transport in the country.

the country is a living photograph.

I'm happy to report NO food poisoning AND was not shot a single time by terrorists.

Merry Christmas everyone.

ps: I've just discovered that all 8 CRM 4.0 Accellerators have been released in my absence. This is great news. I'm looking forward to playing with them over the next few days.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Well here it is again... It feels only a month ago I recovered from last new year's frivolities.

Wishing you all the best this Christmas and new year!!!
