For you who loved FetchXML Wizard, you will definitely adore LINQPad. LINQPad allows you to write and run LINQ expressions straight to CRM 2011 server.
Here is how to get started:
Getting its CRM 2011 LINQPad driver
Go here and click on to the Download tab and download the .lpx file. Save this file in the LINQPad installation folder.
Getting it working
Click on Add connection,
Click on View more drivers
Browse to the file and Open.
Select MS CRM 2011 and click Next
Enter Organization URL and click Verify, then enter Login Credentials, and Click OK
Enjoy LINQPad, don’t forget to select the correct database before running your LINQ expression.
PS: I had some problem trying to connect to CRM 2011 server, but it worked beautifully after a few tries.
