CRM 2011 UnManaged and Managed solution in DEV and PROD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Guys,

    I've two environments DEV and PROD right now. Currently I'm running into issues in DEV when I've tried to create a new user or open the solution. I'm getting one of those generic messages System.Web.HttpUnhandledException when I try to open the create user form or just trying to open solution.

    Based on a quick search I've learned that if I'd made any changes to the forms then I need to revert back those changes and publish the changes again. Unfortunately I've made a lot of changes and just can't pinpoint to the exact changes. Is there a easy way to fix this issue?

    Well, I don't have a copy of unmanaged solution from DEV as earlier I've exported the solution as managed to PROD.

    So far everything is working fine in prod and nothing has broken so I'm just trying to overwrite the changes in DEV from PROD but how can I get a unmanaged version from PROD?

    Shall I just export the default solution from PROD from customizations area and import into DEV? Or create a new solution in PROD

  • You can't export solution from the production environment as it is managed. You will have to compare the prod and dev system manually and then move customization from dev to live. Do you have a backup copy of customization or dev server back or dev database backup copy?

  • Well the problem here is not PROD and it is working fine. It is the DEV that is broken.

    So I want to revert changes in DEV to earlier version. But I don't have a copy of unmanaged solution of previous version.

    I can still export the solution from PROD right from customizations area as unmanaged? But I'm guessing all the components will be still managed right?
