This blog article will walk you through the required steps on how to install GroupCalendar and ActivityTools in a claims-based environment.
This article is valid for GroupCalendar for CRM 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2016 but only for CRM 2013 and older versions of ActivityTools. From CRM 2015 onwards ActivityTools does not have to be configured for IFD anymore!
The steps are the same for both products, so instead of an explicit product name, we will use the term the addon in this guide.
When using per User licensing, it is mandatory to enable all users that should be licensed within CRM. It often occurs, that after installing the license via the License Manager, the below screen appears:

Before you can upgrade your CRM 4 to 2011, you will need to uninstall all 3rd party addons and check that all buttons have been deleted. After the migration you can then install the latest version of each addon. Should you have not done this, then it will be more complicated to get rid of the buttons and icons before you can install the CRM 2011 addons.
On a migrated organization, make sure the dcp/gc/ti security role migrated from CRM 4 is deleted.
This migrated role might interfere with the new setup and block the user from installing, because rights are checked wrongly.
