Exporting/Importing A Solution RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey All,

    Is it possible to export a solution from the online version of MS CRM 2011 and then import the solution to a Local version of MS CRM 2011? Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

  • There's one gotcha to be aware of, via Chris Cognetta:

    Several customers have been migrating from CRM 2011 Online to CRM 2011 Onpremise in recent weeks. When building a test environment, I realized that the customizations from the CRM 2011 Online would not import into CRM 2011 On Premise.

    After further investigation, the CRM 2011 Online customizations file contains an entity called Visualizations. This entity was used for the older CRM 4 Online dashboards and is not present in the On-premise versions.

    Edit the XML to delete this entity, rezip and import! Enjoy.
