Can I install the same solution multiple times? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a plugin that was developed a year ago but don't have the original updated source. We have backups but they are old. Is it possible to install the same solution two or three times? What would I have to change in order for it to work?

    At the moment, this is the only workaround we might have.

  • Hi,

    You certainly can install a solution multiple times, but unless the version changes of Plugins/Workflow components, you will replace the previous version. Customisations will always replace the previous customisations.

    If only install updates, fields will not be removed from the database - but forms and views will no longer show them.

    If you delete a managed solution, the fields will be deleted from the database.
