How to obtain the setup updates for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011

If you select the option to check for setup updates, the application downloads any new setup updates and applies them to the installation while the setup process is running.
If the Microsoft Dynamics CRM server has an Internet connection, you can select Get updates for Microsoft Dynamics CRM during the installation. If there are any setup updates available, the updates are downloaded and applied to the installation.
If the Microsoft Dynamics CRM server does not have an Internet connection, or you want to manually deploy the setup updates, follow these steps:
