CRM 2013 online - deploy a 2015 solution package to crm 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have staging online CRM upgraded to 2015 already, however, the prod CRM still stays in version 2013 during this transition time.  We developed some functions in staging CRM, such as new attributes, web resources, workflows, etc, and packaged them into a solution.  When we imported the solution to production(2013), we had the error saying '...invalid XML in package...'.  Is there any way to fix it?  Thanks.

  • Hello,

    So if I have got it right, you want to export your solution from CRM 2015 to CRM 2013 which is your production. Unfortunately you cant do this as any solution exported from a newer version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM (which is crm 2015 in your case) cannot be imported into an older version of Microsoft Dynamics CRM (which is CRM 2013 in your case).

    You can also refer the following link for more information:-

  • Hi, A Bakshi-

    I was just given an answer by Microsoft.  Yes, you are right, CRM 2015 is not backward compatible with its previous versions, on solution package perspective.  Microsoft says: You can try the business logic in Staging instance and then later implement the same manually using the 2013 supported functionality until your organization gets upgraded to 2015 Edition.
