How to change the save location of the metadata.bin file

Per default, CRM metadata information for DocumenstCorePack is stored here:


The above location equals to C:\Users\[YourUsername]\AppData\Roaming\DCP\metadata.
If you want to change this location, you have to generate a new SettingsKey.

Click here to learn how to create a new SettingsKey.
The name of the key has to be "CommunicateToMSCRMFolderLocation" and as a value you must set a path, e.g. "c:\TEMP\" or "\\fileshare\TEMP"
Please note: This new key will affect all DocumenstCorePack Client installation! So you have to make sure that each DocumenstCorePack Client user has access to provided path!
Please note: The DocumentsCorePackDataProvider must be restarted on the Client afterwards!
That’s it! We appreciate your feedback! Please share your thoughts by sending an email to
