  • Hi Sebd.DD,

    When you say overwrite, do you mean undo the managed components, with an unmanaged solution? If so, I'm afraid you cannot do this. The nature of managed solutions is such that they protect the contents of the solution from being tampered with.

    I would suggest deleting the Managed solution, and then importing your Unmanaged solution, if you'd like it to be Unmanaged moving forward.

    Please take a default solution back-up of your Target system, so that if anything goes wrong, you can revert.

  • Hi,

    Managed solution cannot be export it out. You cant import it after changing the managed to unmanaged. Because existing solution will import managed to managed and un managed to un managed. 

    You can delete the managed solution and re import unmanaged solution.
