Symptoms

When you customize the statuscode attribute of an entity in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0, the invariantname property of the entity is localized unexpectedly.

For example, you are working in the French version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0. You export the PhoneCall entity in XML format by using the Export Customization tool. You examine the statecode section of the generated XML file to find the collection of status codes that are available. The status codes have an invariantname property and a description property, as shown in the following example.
     <state value="0" defaultstatus="1" invariantname="Open">
       <labels>
        <label description="Ouvert" languagecode="1036" />
     </labels>
You change the status code of the entity, and then you publish the changes. When you again examine the content of the generated XML file, the invariantname property is localized, as shown in the following example.
     <state value="0" defaultstatus="1" invariantname="Ouvert">
       <labels>
        <label description="Ouvert" languagecode="1036" />
     </labels>
Note If you customize the statuscode property by using the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Software Development Kit (SDK), the invariantname property is used. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
Error 0x80048408: State code is invalid or state code is valid but status code is invalid for a specific state code.
