Recently, from Visual Studio, after connecting to CRM organization using D365 DEV toolkit, we tried to create a plugin for Contact entity. While creating, we got error message: Value can not be null, Parameter name : path. 


To fix this issue, we updated the path of D365 plugin registration tool and bin folder as mentioned below:


  1. Open Visual Studio
  2. Go to Tools –> Options.
  3. Update the paths mentioned above as shown here:Fix_Issue
  4. Click on OK.

Then, we tried to create the plugin for Contact entity and it worked.

Hope it helps.
