Symptoms
After you configure a time value for a new task or appointment in Microsoft Business Solutions CRM 1.2, when you try to save your changes to that task or appointment, you receive the following error message:
You must enter a valid time.
Cause
This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • You are using a Russian language edition of Microsoft CRM 1.2.
  • From the Due list in the task or in the appointment, you select a time that is in a Russian time format.

When you create a task or an appointment in Microsoft CRM 1.2, the default time is set to 12:00 PM. However, in the Russian language version of Microsoft CRM 1.2, the Russian language versions of the "AM" and the "PM" options also appear on the Due list where you select a time. When you select one of these options, the error occurs because Microsoft CRM 1.2 cannot handle Russian time formats.
Resolution
Microsoft CRM has a fix for this problem that is part of a cumulative update. The cumulative update information is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
